By Ibrahim Taiwo, The Nigerian Voice Sports

Super Eagles Captain, Ahmed Musa has revealed that the team will go all out for victory against Sierra Leone in the Afcon qualifiers clash at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin on Friday, November 13.

Nigeria and Sierra Leone will slug it out in a double-header with the second leg billed for Freetown four days after the Benin encounter.

There will be no fans at the newly-refurbished stadium due to the Covid-19 protocols.

“It is true we don’t know much of the Sierra Leone national team, but we have resolved to play our best game to beat them at our home and away,” Musa told the media.

“Two victories over them will give us the ticket to Afcon, so we won’t joke with the games.”

“Playing without our ever-supportive fans at the newly refurbished Samuel Ogbemudia stadium will not affect our games both in Benin City and Freetown,” he continued.

“It’s quite a pity that Edo fans will miss the opportunity of seeing us play live because of the pandemic but we shall try to win for them.

"For me and the team it is a very sad [playing without fans] moment because playing in Benin in the hometown of my mom, I'd love to see my family members watch but there is nothing we can do because of the situation in the country with the pandemic so we have to play like that."

Musa has made 93 caps for Nigeria scoring 15 goals including four goals at the FIFA World Cup.
