Monday’s Group A AFCON qualifying game between 183rd FIFA ranked Sao Tome and Principe and Nigeria is, at least on paper is as one-sided as a game in African football can be. The illustrious ‘Super Eagles’ face a side who have only won ten official competitive games since joining CAF in the late 1970s.
Monday’s game will be staged in the neutral venue of Agadir (Morocco) with Sao Tome’s national stadium (12 de Julho) not having the infrastructure required to host a high profile AFCON qualifying game.
Sao Tome are very much the ‘whipping boys’ of Group A and despite taking the lead against Guinea-Bissau, The Falcons and True Parrots Team were solidly beaten 5-1 in their Group A opener with Nigeria at the same time recording a win against Sierra Leone in Abuja with Napoli’s Victor Osimhen the hero, bagging the winner in new manager’s Jose Peseiro competitive debut.
