Cyriel Dessers says Nigeria must beat Sierra Leone in their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria will begin their quest for a place in Cote d’Ivoire 2023 when they face the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in Abuja on Thursday.
Despite suffering two international defeats against Mexico and Ecuador under new coach Jose Peseiro, Dessers have now said that they have no choice than to beat the Leone Stars on Thursday.
We have to perform, do the business even behind closed doors.
It would have been great with the fans at the stadium, but that will not be possible for this game.
