In anticipation of the pivotal quarter-final clash between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Angola’s Palancas Negras at the 34th AFCON in Côte d’Ivoire, principal officers of the National Assembly are set to visit Abidjan to rally behind the Nigerian team.

The Senate Committee on Sports chairman, Senator Kawu Sumaila, shared this news in a press briefing in Abuja, expressing satisfaction with the Super Eagles’ performance so far.

He noted that not only principal officers but also members of the National Assembly joint committees on sports would join the delegation to support the team.

Senator Kawu also mentioned that the fate of Super Eagles’ coach, Jose Peseiro, would be discussed post-tournament, expressing confidence in victory against Angola.

Both teams, with an average age of 26, are vying for a crucial win to secure a spot in the AFCON semifinals. The winner of the Nigeria vs.

Angola match will face the victor of Cape Verde vs. South Africa on February 7, 2024, at the 40,000-capacity Peace Stadium in Bouake, with the AFCON final scheduled for February 11.
