Uncertainty Over Eagles, Guinea Clash


With less than four days to the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Sily National of  Guinea, Nigeria’s Super Eagles are still in the dark whether the match will go ahead as  planned.

Coaches and players of the senior national team are worried that with the FIFA ban still  in place, the qualifier may not hold. But a report from Guinea early today revealed that  coach of the Eagles’ opponents,  Frenchman Michel Dussuyer, has received a notice from  the Guinea Football Federation that the crucial match has been postponed.

Eagles’ coach, Austin Eguavoen, who is confused with the way the whole scenario is being  played out at this time that his team should focus on their training for the match said:  “We, the coaches and players, are waiting and hoping that the crisis comes to an end very  soon so that we can return to international football.”
