Retired Nigerian footballer Garba Lawal has warned the Super Eagles against complacency vs Lesotho, reports Sport247.
Nigeria welcome the Crocodiles to the Teslim Balogun Stadium for their final 2022 AFCON qualifying fixture on Tuesday with qualification for next year’s event already secured.
Lawal who won 57 caps during his playing days, urged Gernot Rohr’s men to not take the game unseriously as football can be unpredictable.
“Everyone knows in normal circumstances, Benin and Lesotho are no match for Nigeria but football these days has changed. There are no small games again,” he told Goal.
“I believe they want to win both games and we have confidence in them because the coach made his list and he called the best of the best. And I believe we want to see them playing good football and we want to see them winning.
“If someone had predicted that we would play 4-4 with Sierra Leone in Nigeria, we would have said no but it happened so what it means is that we can never tell what will happen in football these days. They just have to take the game very seriously.” Lawal concluded.
