Super Eagles will be meeting Tanzania in Saturday’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations Group G qualifier in Uyo, Akaw Ibom State.
Pride will be the only the thing at stake as both teams have crashed out of the 2017 AFCON, losing the group’s ticket to Egypt. The other team in the group, Chad, pulled out of the qualifiers on financial grounds.
In seven past meetings, Nigeria are yet to lose to Tanzania.
The last time Nigeria met Tanzania was in the first leg of group G 2017 AFCON in Dar es Salam which ended 0-0.
Saturday’s AFCON 2017 qualifier will kick off at 5pm local time, officials have disclosed.
The dead rubber AFCON qualifier will be staged at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium nicknamed ‘The Nest of Champions’.
The Akwa Ibom State Government has thrown open the gates as a capacity crowd is expected for coach Gernot Rohr’s first match in charge of the Super Eagles. The match will be beamed live on national television as well as pay TV.
Nigeria have two points from three matches, while Tanzania are on a point after Egypt won the three-team group with 10 points to qualify for next year’s AFCON in Gabon.
