Nations Cup qualifiers: Calabar stadium fans to get free flags

The flags will be donated by the National Orientation Agency

Nigerian football fans that will be at the U.J. Esiene stadium in Calabar to watch the Super Eagles play against Liberia will get free flags to motivate the Eagles, as the National Orientation Agency has promised to donate 5000 Nigerian flags for the match.

The Director General of the Agency, Mike Omeri, who said this in Abuja on Wednesday morning, said every Nigerian at the venue is expected to hold a flag each to show support for the National Team.

The Super Eagles will face the Lone Stars of Liberia on Saturday in Calabar. After the first leg ended 2-2 in Liberia, the winner of the match in Calabar would qualify for qualify for the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa. A goalless draw or a 1-1 draw will also see Nigeria qualify ahead of their West African opponent.

Super Eagles Captain and defender, Joseph Yobo, has been ruled out of the crunch tie with a knee injury.
