The
Liberian delegation will be accommodated at the Channels View Hotel, while
match officials, led by Match Commissioner, El Hadj Moucharaf Anjorin from
Benin Republic will stay at the Axari Hotel.
The
Confederation of African Football has picked South African match officials to
take charge of the crucial game, with school teacher Daniel Bennett at the
centre.
Both
teams played out a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Monrovia last month, with the
winner on aggregate to be eligible for the three-week, 16-nation African Cup of
Nations finals in South Africa early next year.
The
10,000 –capacity U. J. Esuene Stadium in Canaan City is expected to be filled
for the occasion of Nigeria’s expected return to African football’s summit.
Officials
of the Nigeria Football Federation confirmed on Wednesday that the Lone Star
will have a feel of the U. J. Esuene Stadium on Thursday, with the U-17 Team of
Guinea, billed to take on the Golden Eaglets in a 2013 African U-17
Championship qualifier on Sunday, to take their turn on the turf on Friday.
