News filtering in has it that the Super Eagles of Nigeria will prosecute the last
leg of the World Cup Qualifiers against the Walia Antelopes of Ethiopia.
A statement credited to an NFF official reads...
"As far as the federation is concerned at this moment, there is no reason to change the venue," the official said. "If the NFF decides to bring the team to Abuja and anything goes wrong, people will say it is because the venue has changed.
"In any case, it will be the height of ingratitude to the government and people of Cross River State who took the team in and hosted them at a time when nobody else wanted to."
The official went on to add that the only way the match would move from Calabar, is if the players specifically request it."If the coach and players come out and say they want to play in Abuja, then the NFF would have no choice, but for now, the game will be in Calabar."
What do you think, is Calabar a fortress to the Eagles?
