The Super Eagles are favourites to win the game but Keister claimed his players won’t just lie down and allow the Super Eagles overrun them.

“We are going to go there to compete. We are not going to go there and lie down. I don’t really need to let the players understand the significance of this game,”Keister said in a short video posted on the official website of the Sierra Leone Football Federation on Thursday.

” I think the players themselves should understand that. They should relish the challenge of coming up against Nigerian players who are doing well overseas.”

The Super Eagles top Group A of the qualifiers with nine points, while Sierra Leone are four points adrift in third position.
