President of Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick says the Super Eagles of Nigeria will continue to play their home games at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium as a reward for the passion of the fans.

Speaking to Owngoalnigeria.com after the game that saw over 40,000 fans inside the 25,000 capacity stadium, Pinnick played down the stretching of the stadium’s capacity.

“I want to pay special tribute to the Kaduna state fans, they are passionate and a proof that our football is still alive, we spoke to them and they promised they won’t encroach during the game and true to their words they didn’t” He said.

“As long as there’s no encroachment during and immediately after the game I don’t see any reason why we making a meal out of it, Kaduna is our home, Eagles will come back here”.

Nigeria travel to Egypt on Monday for their Tuesday game against Egypt in Alexandria after the disappointment of failing to pick all three points in Kaduna they need to avoid defeat.
