In an apparent bid to ensure support for the Super Eagles, authorities have thrown the gates of the National Stadium, Abuja open for spectators to watch the Nations Cup 2015 qualifier between Nigeria and Sudan for free. The match kicks off at 5 pm local time.
Nigeria lost 0-1 to the Sudanese side in Khartoum on Saturday.
With the loss, Nigeria’s chances of featuring in the next edition of the Nation’s Cup became slimmer as the country presently occupies the bottom spot in the group.
There have also been several calls for the sack of the Head Coach, Stephen Keshi.
Earlier in the day, Senate President, David Mark urged his colleagues to offer special prayers for the Super Eagles during the National Assembly’s prayer session on Wednesday as he said the matter concerns “national pride.”
