Lagos awaits Eagles' arrival


There will be a 45 minute send-off ceremony organised by the NFA at the Murtala Mohammed Airport before their departure to Ghana.

Media Officer Ademola Olajire tells that the team will fly into Lagos aboard a Lufthansa Airline from Frankfurt at about 5pm and depart for Accra 45 minutes later.

“The idea is for them to say a final farewell to the fans, have a parley with the Press and get words of encouragement from the sports minister and some NFA board members before facing the task ahead in Ghana,” Olajire said.

Meanwhile, more than one thousand members of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club are expected to leave Nigeria for Sekondi on Saturday to cheer the Eagles against Ivory Coast on Monday.
