“We have finally settled for the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba for the qualifying match against Sierra Leone.

“The match will be played on Friday, 27th March 2020,” NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, said.

With the NFF having picked March 27 for the first match, the Sierra Leone Football Association will most likely choose Tuesday, 31st March for the return leg in Freetown.

A win against their fellow West Africans in Asaba, will see the Super Eagles edge closer to qualification.
