The Super Eagles squad arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, on Saturday, for their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixture against the Warriors of Zimbabwe on Sunday.
PUNCH Sports Extra earlier reported that the delegation of players and officials travelled to East Africa aboard a chartered aircraft that departed from the Victor Attah International Airport Friday night and is expected to touch down in Kigali at dawn, before a two-hour road trip to Butare, the city where the match venue (Huye Stadium) is located.
The 20,000-capacity Huye Stadium has an artificial turf but the Eagles have voiced a collective decision not to be bothered about the playing turf as they seek the maximum three points.
After a 1-1 draw with Lesotho’s Crocodiles in Uyo on Thursday evening, Jose Peseiro vowed to face the remaining nine matches of the qualification series with a much stronger mentality, with victory in each match the only option.
