The same source also indicates suggestions were made by the federation to travel by road but the players opted against it citing poor roads as their reason.


“For the first match in Benin (Republic), we are playing in the city of Cotonou. We will stay in Lagos ahead of the match. But because the road is not good between Lagos and Cotonou, we will travel to the match on a boat because the crossing only lasts two hours, instead of many hours on poor roads.” Their coach said
