Three-time African champions, the Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to record another resounding victory over the Falcons and True Parrots of Sao Tome and Principe as they both clash this afternoon at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium Uyo.

It is the 2024 AFCON qualification series final-day fixture and the Super Eagles who recorded a massive 10-0 first leg win in Agadir in 2022 are highly favoured to cruise to victory again.

The Super Eagles require the minimum win to finish top of the pool, having already qualified for the finals in Cote d’Ivoire early next year following their 3-2 defeat of Sierra Leone in Monrovia on 18th June.

It is also expected that Jose Peseiro will hand Super Eagles debut to the trio of Jordan Torunarigha and forwards Victor Boniface and Gift Orban.

They are the three players who received their first-ever national team invitation from the Portuguese.

Meanwhile, the visiting Falcons and True Parrots had their first training in Nigeria on Friday and trained again yesterday evening at the venue of the dead rubber match.

The Super Eagles also rounded up their training at the same venue after the visitors’ feel of the lush green turf inside the main bowl of the Godswill Akpabio Stadium.

The Chairman of the NFF Security Committee, Alhaji Babagana Kalli also declared yesterday that all safety and security arrangements have been perfected ahead of today’s encounter.

“We have held a series of meetings with representatives of all security agencies and we are all on the same page. As I speak with you, we are having another meeting with the representatives of the Federal Road Safety Corps, DSS, Police and the Army.

“There is no small match in football again. Safety and security are very important aspects of the organization of any sporting event, and we are not unaware of that fact.”
