Stephen Keshi Stadium May Host Nigeria Vs Seychelles


Fresh talk has emerged over the possibility of the ultra-modern Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba hosting the Super Eagles in a high-profile international match, with their last Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles now being mooted for the arena.

Though the stadium was said to have been dropped on account what had been deemed its ‘small size,’ learnt that undercurrents from Wednesday’s Federation Cup final at the venue have raised fresh angles to the possibilities of Nigeria’s national team playing there.

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, HAmaju Pinnick added his voice to the debate early Tuesday, when he told the annual general meeting that Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr would again check the feasibility of the stadium hosting his team.

Pinnick hinted that, besides watching the final between Kano Pillars and Rangers of Enugu, Rohr would also personally check to see if the stadium could host Eagles’ matches.

Should Rohr emerge with a positive view from his checks and the Fed Cup final, Nigerians might see the Eagles line out against Seychelles in March next year at the stadium that hosted this year’s African Athletics Championship with great success and rave reviews following.
