Super Eagles arrived Rwanda, on Saturday, for Today’s FIFA World Cup qualifier against Zimbabwe.
The team left for Kigali — Zimbabwe’s temporary home ground – in the early hours of Saturday for the most matchday two showdown against the Warriors.
Departing from the Victor Attah International Airport on Friday night, a delegation comprising players and officials, embarked on their East African journey aboard a chartered aircraft.
Upon their arrival in Kigali, the team then traveled by road on a two-hour journey to Butare, where the 20,000-capacity Huye Stadium is located.
Undeterred by the artificial playing surface, the Eagles have unanimously decided to focus on securing the maximum three points.
Following a 1-1 draw with Lesotho in Uyo on Thursday evening, Jose Peseiro and his determined squad are committed to approaching the remaining nine qualification matches with a strengthened mentality, where victory is the sole objective.
Opting to tackle the high-altitude challenge head-on, the Eagles strategically chose to conduct their official training session and engage in the match before the unfamiliar climate potentially takes its toll.
The Warriors, fresh from a goalless draw with Rwanda in their matchday one fixture, have acclimatized to the artificial turf of Huye Stadium since arriving in Rwanda.
Kick off for Sunday’s game is 3pm Rwanda time (2pm Nigeria).
