SportsRation presents three things to expect as Nigeria host Sao Tome and Principe in a final Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game.
The match will take place at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo by 5pm on Sunday September 10, 2023.
EXPECT GOALS: Based on Nigeria’s rating, overwhelming quality and experience from a 0-10 first leg score, expect three or more goals when the Super Eagles file out against the Sao Tome and Principe national team.
Nigeria is blessed in attack with in-form strikes Victor Osimhen, Taiwo Awoniyi, Gift Orban and German Bundesliga rookie award winner Victor Boniface, an intimidating set with loads of expectations for the AFCON qualifier on Sunday.
A DEFENSIVE SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE SET-UP: The fear of suffering another humiliating result vs Nigeria will be the beginning of wisdom for Sao Tome and Principe on Sunday September 10.
With the 0-10 first leg result on their mind, expect a defence minded Sao Tome and Principe side vs the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The Patriots will sit back to defend and frustrate a star-studded Nigerian side and who knows spring a surprise on the counter.
A THRILLING ENCOUNTER: We are looking forward to a thrilling encounter at the Nest of Champions on Sunday.
The city of Uyo is charged with fans ready to explore the free opportunity of free tickets to watch the Super Eagles see out a successful AFCON qualification run.
A dead-rubber game though but the question ” Can Nigeria put ten past Sao Tome and Principe again ” is something to look forward to when action gets underway in Uyo.
