Sierra Leone Football Association president Ishay Johansen has joked that the Leone Stars will gift the Super Eagles just one goal, before going ahead to win the second leg of their Group L 2021 AFCON qualifier in Freetown on Tuesday.
The Leone Stars made a shock comeback by cancelling a 4-0 deficit to draw 4-4 against the Eagles in the reverse tie in Benin on Friday.
They will now hope to record their first win against the Eagles since 2001.
And ahead of Tuesday’s game, Johansen said the Eagles will be gifted one goal just for making the trip to Freetown.
“I have told the president of the Nigeria Football Federation my brother and colleague, Pinnick, we would squeeze in one goal for them,” she told Legit TV after the game in Benin.
“We will let them have one and then we would go with the rest (goals) we would be flying with the rest.
“We would probably, you know just for the trip for their effort to make the trip, we would give them one.”
