Nigeria vs S’Leone: Super Eagles camp opens in Benin

The Super Eagles training camp will open on Monday in Benin City for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone. The match is fixed for Friday, November 13, at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium.

Team officials and other backroom staff including the new team Media Officer Babafemi Raji were billed to arrive in camp on Sunday ahead of the players. The players are expected in Benin City after this weekend’s games with their various clubs. It is hoped that Victor Osimhen will also release him after suggesting otherwise.

Eagles will lodge at Eterno Hotel, while the match officials and the delegation of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will be accommodated at the Edo Heritage Hotel.

The Sierra Leoneans, who are booked at the Lush Hotel in Benin City, are expected to fly into Lagos. They will arrive in Lagos on Wednesday from where they will connect another flight to Benin same day.
