2021 AFCON Qualifier: Sierra Leone Won’t Be Taking For Granted – Pinnick

2021 AFCON Qualifier Sierra Leone

President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick has reiterated that the Super Eagles won't take Sierra Leone for granted in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The game which has been slated for the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, Delta State, will be the first match Nigeria will play in 2020.

The 2013 AFCON champions are top of Group L on six points after defeating the Squirrels of Benin 2-1 and Crocodiles of Lesotho 4-2.

Pinnick told Goalballlive.com that qualifying for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations remains the priority of the football body.

“Qualifying for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations is an agenda that the football body must fulfill. Interestingly, we have started pretty well by topping a group that consists of Lesotho, Benin, and Sierra Leone,” Pinnick told Goalballlive.com.

“Our priority is to ensure that the Super Eagles pick all three points against Sierra Leone in Asaba so that we can maintain our unbeaten run in the group.
