The Super Eagles land in Freetown for redemption match

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have landed in Freetown for their African Nations Cup qualifying match with the Leone Stars on Tuesday.

It is not an ordinary qualifying match.

It is a redemption match for the Eagles, to salvage their image.

The Eagles squandered a 4-0 lead against the Leone Stars on Saturday at Ogbe Stadium in Benin.

Nigerian fans and the players were embarrassed as the Leone stars clawed their way back into the game, forcing a 4-4 draw.

Captain Ahmed Musa had since apologised for the blunder, pledging an improvement in Freetown.
