Coronavirus: S’Eagles Star Backs Postponement Of AFCON Qualifiers

Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo believes the postponement of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone by the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) is a welcome development due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus.

The Nigerian international made this known on Tuesday during an interview on Television Continental (TVC) monitored by Goalball, where he said he was first unhappy with the decision.

Omeruo, who plays for Leganes in the Spanish League has been under self-isolation at home with his family after the La Liga suspended all matches in the league.

He said that the CAF decision was for the best interest of the players and must be respected by all countries.

“Seriously we are not happy with the postponement of the AFCON qualifier because we are all looking forward to that game.

”You know it has been a while some of us played for the Super Eagles and it would have been good if the game was not postponed. But there is nothing we can do.

“The coach once called me to inform me that we should stay safe and keep training, which is important.
