The Akwa Ibom State Government has thrown open the gates as a capacity crowd is expected for coach Gernot Rohr’s first match in charge of the Super Eagles. The match will be beamed live on national television as well as pay TV.

Nigeria have two points from three matches, while Tanzania are on a point after Egypt won the three-team group with 10 points to qualify for next year’s AFCON in Gabon.
