Eagles Seek Perfect AFCON Qualifying Run Against Guinea Bissau Today

Nigeria will welcome Guinea-Bissau in a battle for supremacy at the top of the table as two teams who have made fine starts to their respective Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaigns face off at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja today.

According to reports, both teams are unbeaten during these qualifiers after two matches played. While the Super Eagles have claimed the maximum points from their opening two games, the Wild Dogs have four points after a win and a draw.

After beginning their AFCON qualifier with a 2-1 victory against Sierra Leone, Jose Peseiro’s men made easy work out of Sao Tome and Principe with a comfortable 10-0 win on June 13.

Napoli forward Victor Osimhen was the star of the show as he netted four times and set up further strikes for Moses Simon and Terem Moffi, who were joined on the scoresheet by Peter Etebo, Ademola Lookman, and Emmanuel Dennis. Despite their impressive display in the qualifiers, the Eagles failed to record a win in their last three games, losing to Algeria, Costa Rica, and Portugal – all in friendly encounters.

They will now seek to return to winning ways against an opposing outfit who suffered a 2-0 defeat in the only previous edition of this fixture back in the 2022 AFCON.
