AFCON 2012: Liberia keeps arrival secret from Nigeria

Super Eagles of Nigeria

The Liberian team must edge out the Super Eagles to qualify for the Nations Cup.

The Liberia Football Association has kept mute about the arrival of the Liberian team to Nigeria for the final round of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier which will take place in Calabar on Saturday.

The General Secretary of The Nigeria Football Federation, Musa Amadu, expressed worry about this development.

“I really don’t know what they (Liberia) are up to. They have not communicated their arrival date to us,” he said. “However, we are not bothered about that. Rather, we’re concerned with preparing our team optimally to achieve victory.”

The Super Eagles arrived in Calabar on Monday morning and they have continued with their preparation for the match.

Liberia has never recorded a draw or a win in Nigeria. The Lone Stars, however, need a high-score draw or a win in Calabar on Saturday to turn the table and bar the Super Eagles from next year’s African Cup of Nations in South Africa.
