Recall that both sides had played out a dramatic 4-4 draw in the first leg clash at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin, last Friday.

Nigeria had gone 4-0 ahead in the first 30 minutes, but Sierra Leone mounted an incredible comeback, scoring once in the first half before another three goals in the last 20 minutes sealed a point for them.

It was a result that left Nigerians disappointed with fans criticising the performance.

However, Super Eagles stars have vowed to make fans smile by recording a victory in the second leg.
