After Bissau Revenge Mission, Osayi-Samuel Focused on Sealing AFCON Qualification Against Sierra Leone


Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers was underwhelming, despite the 1-0 victory against Guinea-Bissau in the second leg tie.

The Eagles returned top of the group A, but lost grounds when they fell 1-0 at home to the Djurtus, in Abuja.

With nine points from five games, another win will confirm Nigeria’s place at the 2024 Cup of Nations tournament, and Bright Osayi-Samuel is confident the return in fortune can be sustained.

Although it was a laborious win in Bissau, Osayi-Samuel described said the players were determined to turn the tie around after the defeat in Abuja.

“It is an amazing feeling coming back with the win, especially when they beat us at home in Abuja,” said the RB.

“We really wanted to come back and get revenge on them. As a whole team, everyone is happy, it gives us confidence now to go into the remaining games and qualify for AFCON.”

The Super Eagles will look to cement qualification to the AFCON when they play Sierra Leone away from home in June.
