The Nigeria Football Supporters Club won’t be in Alexandria to cheer the Nigeria national team when they take on the Egyptian team in an AFCON 2017 qualifiers group G game.

Super Eagles need an outright victory against Egypt in Alexandria to qualify for next year AFCON but they might have to do that without the presence of their passionate singing fans.

President of Nigeria Football Supporters Club Dr. Rafiu Ladipo told owngoalnigeria.com on phone that the move is a deliberate attempt by the embassy to frustrate the Eagles.

“This is a delberate ploy to frustrate us and stop us from supporting our team, it’s not good for the spirit of fair play but with or without us they will fall in Alexandria by the grace of God” He told Owngoalnigeria.com

However the president general insist they will mobilise their members in Egypt as well as Nigerians residing in the country to be at stadium and cheer the team.
