Tonobok Okowa, the Chairman of Delta Sports Commission, says the state will be delighted to continuously have the Super Eagles play their matches at the Stephen Keshi Stadium Asaba, Completesports.com reports.
Okowa said on Thursday that the Super Eagles handlers seemed comfortable with the Delta State capital city’s hosting capabilities and facilities.
“The state government has not influenced it in any way, the choice of Asaba by the NFF may be out of the fact that the state has successfully hosted other international matches and that the facilities are good,” Okowa stated.
“The state government has not really done any form of pushing to continue to host the matches in Asaba but if the state has the option, it will grab it.
“We want to keep bringing them (the Eagles) back because we want to always put the stadium into use and our people love to have them here,” he said.
The Eagles ended their 2019 AFCON qualifiers on a winning note by defeating Seychelles 3-1 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium Asaba, Delta State on Friday.
And next up for Nigeria is an international friendly against Egypt at the same venue on Tuesday.
