by Kunle Awosiyan

Manager Gernot Rohr has commented on the decision of the Nigeria Football Federation to hold next month’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Lesotho at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos.

The German football tactician noted that some of the European-born players he is planning to call up for the game, including Glasgow Rangers duo Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo, are not familiar with the country’s commercial capital.

The Chairman, Lagos State Sports Commission, Mr. Sola Aiyepeku has assured Rohr that the pitch will be match-ready before the game next month, adding that the grass is already lush-green and there are just little finishing touches to be put in place before the qualifying match.
