After more than 20 years outside the Centre of Excellence, Nigeria’s leading sports brand, Super Eagles, are set to make a sensational return to Lagos next month. Yesterday, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) disclosed that the Super Eagles will camp in Lagos ahead of their Cameroun 2022 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Benin Republic in Cotonou, adding that the team will also play their last qualifying tie against Lesotho at the Sportscity.
The Squirrels will host Super Eagles on March 22, 2021.
The last time the Super Eagles played a competitive match in Lagos was 20 years ago when they beat Zambia 1-0 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on January 13, 2001, at the National Stadium.
According to the NFF, the Super Eagles will camp in Lagos to prepare for the African Cup of Nations tie before travelling to the Benin Republic a few days to the game.
