Nigerian football national team, Super Eagles, have travelled to Freetown ahead of the return leg of their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sierra Leone.

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.

In a series of pictures posted on the team’s official Twitter page, the team was seen leaving for Freetown, where the match will take place.

A win for Nigeria at the Siaka Stevens Stadium on Tuesday could see the three-time African champions qualify for the biggest sporting competition in Africa.
