Nigeria’s Super Eagles will round off their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign with a clash against Lesotho this evening (Tuesday).
The Super Eagles have already booked their spot in the finals of the competition, sitting top of Group L with 11 points from seven matches, while Lesotho are rock bottom of the section with three points.
Gernot Rohr’s side are unbeaten in Group L, winning three and drawing two of their five matches to collect 11 points, which has left them four points clear of second-placed Benin and seven clear of Sierra Leone in third.
Lesotho, meanwhile, have never qualified for the finals of an Africa Cup of Nations tournament, and they will also not be present in next year’s competition, which is not a surprise.
The Crocodiles are without a victory in any competition since August 2019, but they have only lost two of their five matches in this section, picking up three points, meaning that third position is still open in Group L.
