AFCON qualifier :- Super Eagles exempted from NCDC quarantine rules

by Kunle Awosiyan

The Nigeria Football Federation has revealed that players listed for Nigeria’s 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Squirrels of Benin Republic slated for March 22 will not be subjected to Nigeria Center for Disease Control quarantine rules for people arriving from overseas countries, especially England and South Africa.

The NCDC rule states that such arrivals must be tested for COVID-19 and quarantined for a while before being integrated to the society.

NFF Media Director, Ademola Olajire, revealed that every player invited for the AFCON qualifier would be tested on COVID-19 on arrival in the country, but would not be quarantined because it would not be possible for them to get to camp two weeks before the match.
