AFCON Qualifiers: Rohr Set For Mission In Asaba
After being used for the hosting of the 21st African Senior Athletics Championships, the newly-completed Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba is set for more international assignments.
It is understood that the Asaba Stadium may serve as home for the Super Eagles in their crucial 2019 Africa Cup of Nations home tie against Libya.
To this end, the Super Eagles’ manager Gernot Rohr is meant to inspect the facility if it will be good enough for his wards to play their October 10 clash against the Libyans.
Rohr is expected in the country later on Monday where he will continue discussions with eggheads of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) this week.
At the meeting, Rohr will be told to pick a date when he will be shown around the Keshi stadium in Asaba and other places which are important towards hosting matches of such standard.
Nigeria trails in her group, having been beaten by Bafana Bafana 0-2 last year inside the Nest of Champions Stadium, Uyo, making the country’s next two matches against Seychelles and Libya, must win fixtures, if the Eagles hope to get one of the group’s two qualification tickets.
