Kelechi Iheanacho has been spotted telling Sierra Leone striker Kei Kamara in training in Freetown that the Super Eagles players landed in their country with anger.

This is because of the 4-4 draw the Super Eagles were forced to by Sierra Leone in Benin in the first leg of their 2022 African Cup of Nations qualifier.

Sierra Leone were so superb in the duel as the Super Eagles surrendered a 4-1 lead for the tough encounter to finish in a draw.

Nigerian football lovers were angry and stormed the social media after the game with some claiming that the Nigerian Football Federation should fire coach Gernot Rohr.

President of the Nigerian Football Federation Amaju Pinnick also expressed disappointment to the result of the match in Benin and made it clear that Super Eagles must win the return leg 4-0.

Rohr and his men on Monday, November 16, landed in Freetown and they trained later in the evening ahead of their return leg against Sierra Leone.

While training, Kei Kamara decided to go and play with Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho who explained in Pidgin English that he and his teammates are so angry.

''We are very angry and we came here with serious annoyance and I must tell you that we are not here to joke.''

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Gernot Rohr who is the gaffer of the Super Eagles of Nigeria explained that all his players apart from Victor Osimhen are in good shape ahead of the clash with Sierra Leone.

Super Eagles will be facing Sierra Leone on Tuesday evening, November 17, in the return leg of their 2022 African Cup of Nations qualifier which will be played in Freetown.

Sierra Leone were superb in the first leg against the Super Eagles of Nigeria as they came back from 4-1 down and draw the tie at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin.

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen sustained an injury in the encounter and the Super Eagles chiefs have excused him to return to his club in Italy.

Also, there have been news going round that Emmanuel Dennis and Samuel Chukwueze are facing difficulties to be fit for the much-anticipated encounter before Rohr cleared the air.
