Yobo: Eagles must prepare to cage Sierra Leone in Benin

Super Eagles’ assistant coach, Joseph Yobo, has urged his boys to make use of the opportunity to completely overwhelm the visiting Sierra Leone in their first AFCON qualifier in Benin, Edo state.

According to the former skipper of the team, Nigeria should prepare to beat Sierra Leone outrightly to stay afloat in the group.

Nigeria currently sitting on top of Group one with six points, having recorded convincing wins over the Benin Republic and Lesotho in their first two group fixtures.

The three-time African champions are clear favourites against their West African neighbours who are at the bottom of the log, boasting just one point garnered in a home draw to fellow strugglers Lesotho.

“When you play at home, it’s important you play well and win. When you play away, especially against Sierra Leone, it is a difficult place to go to,” Yobo stated on Super Eagles Twitter handle.

“All we have at this moment is the first game at home. I believe our performance will give us the three points.”
