Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr with other members of the technical team during the inspection of the rebuilt Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, ahead of the AFCON 2021 qualifier against the Sierra Leonean Stars.

Benin City, the capital of the state of Edo, was paralyzed Monday night as the Super Eagles players arrived in the old city, ahead of their 2021 AFCON qualifier against the Sierra Leone Leone Stars.

The team led by Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr also inspected the recently rebuilt Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, site of the game billed for Friday, November 13, in Benin City.

The city is also ecstatic about the return of sporting activities, as happy residents watched players inspect the newly renovated stadium by the government led by Governor Godwin Obaseki.

Some others were seen buying custom Nigerian flags and jerseys, special balloons in the national colors, vuvuzela, whistles and other musical equipment to cheer their team to victory on match day.

Some residents, who spoke to journalists, praised the administration led by Governor Obaseki for rebuilding the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, which is now connected to electricity supply 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from the CCETC power plant- Ossiomo.

A resident, Ewere Loveday, said the right to host the competitive match was made possible by the new look of the stadium and the upgrade of all facilities, including the installation of a video assistant referee (VAR) technology.
