NEWS : SPORTS – Ekpo Warns Home Eagles: Be Ready For Hostile Welcome In Cotonou

Former Nigeria international Friday Ekpo has warned the home-based Super Eagles to expect a less-than-friendly reception from Benin Republic in Sunday’s 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) play-off in Cotonou, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The home-based Eagles will be guests of Benin Republic in the first leg of the final round of qualifiers before hosting them a week later in Kano.
The winners over both legs will qualify for the 2018 CHAN in Kenya.
Looking ahead to the game, Ekpo who was in the Super Eagles team that beat Benin Republic 1-0 during the 1992 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, reminisced on how the Eagles under Clemens Westerhof fared back then.
“When we got to Benin Republic it was the Nigerian ambassador at that time that received us not the host country,” Ekpo told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“All our food was taken from there. We went straight to the ambassador’s house and were well taken care of. We got there and the next day we played and won the game. It was not as if we spent days in Benin when we got there.
