Amaju Pinnick, the president of the Nigeria Soccer Federation (NFF), has mentioned they’re but to resolve if the nationwide group will journey by boat for his or her 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier towards Benin Republic.
The Tremendous Eagles will battle the Squirrels in Cotonou on March 27, earlier than dealing with Lesotho three days later in Lagos.
Pinnick has now revealed that travelling by the ocean is without doubt one of the choices the NFF is contemplating.
“Going to Cotonou by boat I do this on a regular basis once we had been going to examine we did it, there’s nothing fallacious in exploring different types of journey in Nigeria,” Pinnick informed Come up TV.
“There’s no person in Lagos that has not been to Ilashe or been to Tarkwa Bay, so it’s the identical factor, so what’s the massive deal.
“Have a look at the Lagos boat terminal, it’s the most effective on this planet that I’ve seen, so why don’t we use all these issues if we now have them.
“So it’s only a projection, we now have not agreed on it. We’re taking a look at going by street to Cotonou which is our next-door neighbour as a result of even if you wish to depart Eko Lodge to the Murtala Muhammed Airport it’s half the journey of going to Cotonou, so why do it’s essential to fly and go to Cotonou?”
Nigeria are prime of Group L with eight factors and a victory both towards the Republic of Benin or Lesotho will seal their place on the AFCON event in Cameroon.
