Simon gears-up Eagles against Sierra Leone clash

Moses Simon have charged his teammates in the Super Eagles to bring in their best club form and not to underrate the Leones of Sierra in the 2021 AFCON Qualifiers later this month in Asaba and Freetown.

The Super Eagles will lock horn against Sierra Leone in Asaba at the Stephen Keshi Stadium on March 27 before the return leg at the Siaka Stevens Stadium, Freetown four days later.


The FC Nantes forward has charged his teammates to lift their game and ensure they pave their route to Cameroon 2021 as easy as possible with victory in both matches.

“We need to stay focused and play the way we do in our clubs not to underestimate them because there are no longer ‘minnows’ in football” Simon stated.

“I’m always happy whenever I’m being called up and ready to represent my fatherland and give in my best. It won’t be different against Sierra Leone also because it is my wish to feature in another AFCON after my first taste last year in Egypt”.

“We will continue to do our best in our respective clubs to ensure that we remain fit and competitive ahead of our game with Sierra Leone”.

The FC Nantes forward has scored five goals in the French League from 26 appearances.
