Nigeria vs Sierra Leone: 2022 CAN qualifier - how and where to watch - times, TV, online
All the information you need on how, when and where to watch the CAN 2022 qualifying game as Nigeria face Sierra Leone in Benin City on 13 November.
International football in Africa has finally resumed after the hiatus following the coronavirus pandemic which paralysed much of what was viewed as normal life over the past months.
The third round of African Nations qualifiers are finally going ahead with CAF moving the Cameroon tournament back from 2021 to January 2022 as a consequence of the pandemic. This third round of qualifying games were originally scheduled for March with the covid-19 outbreak putting paid to their taking place.
Super Eagles solid favourites
Nigeria currently ranked 29th in the FIFA global rankings are solid favourites to maintain their 100% group record against the 120th ranked Sierra Leone and anything other than a comfortable win for Gernot Rohr's men would be a major upset. A game which fans in the US and Puerto Rico can watch on online platform Fanatiz.
My first experience flying commercial since the start of the pandemic...Man I looked like a rookie at checking and security 🙃Positive thing now is the amount of space you get, no need for business class. #InternationalDuty #HappyToBeBack 🇸🇱 pic.twitter.com/yUUBLKFCwQ— KEI KAMARA (@keikamara) November 9, 2020
Sierra Leone will be looking to build on the single point accrued in the opener against Lesotho and have an uphill task ahead to qualify in a group with Nigeria, Benin and Lesotho as head coach John Keister calls for a 'positive approach' from his side with the addition of Minnesota United's Kei Kamara a boost for the Leone Stars.
Nigeria have a wealth of big names to call upon and tomorrow's squad will see the likes of Iwobi, Victor Osimhen, Joe Aribo, Samuel Chukwueze, Kelechi Iheanacho and William Ekong be available for the German manager who will demand maximum points from his side ahead of the return game in Freetown next week.
