With a qualification in the bag, Super Eagles looked more sharp and ready as ever, as they arrive the 'Teslim Balogun Stadium" to face Lesotho in another round of the African Cup Of Nations qualifiers (as shared by the team's social media handler).

It was reported that the 24 year old Everton's midfielder, had earlier tested positive for COVID-19, from the results of the tests conducted on the Super Eagles squad, upon their arrival in Porto Novo, Benin Republic.

The Lagos state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who had earlier today, the 29th of March, hosted the players in his office, took to his social media to share his excitement and also wished the super eagles goodluck:
