Players and officials of the Super Eagles on Friday left for Porto Novo by speed boat, ahead of tomorrow’s 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Benin Republic.
The players were in high spirits as they boarded the boat.
Some of them had raised concerns over the mode of transportation, but head coach Gernot Rohr, who has already made the trip, said it will be the best way to get across to the neigbouring country.
“Last Saturday, I made the trip and we were flying on the water.
“It was so quick and calm,” Rohr said.
The trip by boat to Benin is about an hour long.
Nigeria have opted for boats, because of the bad roads between the two countries and the many protocols for a short flight across the border.
