The Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba will host next month’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone.
The Director of Communications, Nigeria Football Federation, NFF Ademola Olajire, announced this in a statement, quoting the federation’s General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi.
Olajire said with NFF now having picked March 27 for the first match, the Sierra Leone Football Association is now likely to opt for March 31 for the return leg.
The venue, named after former Nigeria captain and Coach Stephen Keshi of blessed memory, has hosted several international matches since 2018.
Since it was opened two years ago, it has hosted matches involving the Super Eagles and the Nigeria Under-23 male squad.
Uganda were the first opposition entertained at the 15,400-capacity venue by the Super Eagles, in a friendly match which ended scoreless.
This came days after Nigeria sealed a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON ticket in South Africa in November 2018.
