The  fans were optimistic that the Squirrels would crush the star-studded Nigerian side on Saturday.

“I am very confident that we are going to defeat Nigeria on Saturday in Porto Novo,” Vinabrede Paul said.

“I used to have sleepless nights whenever we wanted to play Nigeria, but not anymore. We have players who can match the Eagles because some of our players now play abroad and are in the same class with the Nigerian players,” Vodounon Hunsa boasted.

The match is slated for 5 p.m at the Charles De Gaulle Stadium in Port Novo.
