Super Eagles Return to Lagos to Face Lesotho

Gernot Rohr’s Super Eagles are back to Lagos after Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Benin Republic.

The team left Porto-Novo on Sunday morning through the Lagos State Waterways Authority boat, with more than four vessels spotted conveying them.

Super Eagles back in Lagos ahead of Lesotho game

The 2013 African champions will head for the Eko Hotel and Suites hotel and resume preparations in earnest for Tuesday’s fixture against Lesotho.

Paul Onuachu’s last-gasp header earned Nigeria a 1-0 triumph over Michel Dussuyer’s side in the Stade Charles de Gaulle’s keenly contested game. A result that ended the Squirrels’ eight-year invincibility on home soil.

Having booked a ticket already for Cameroon, they will take on the Crocodiles at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in a dead-rubber fixture.

Although nothing is at stake, Nigeria would be hoping to finish their Group L qualification campaign unbeaten. 

In the reverse fixture played at the Setsoto Stadium, Rohr’s team claimed a 4-2 win in Maseru.
