Nigeria’s Super Eagles return to the Borg El Arab Stadium, Alexandria where the team made a failed bid to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations after losing 1-0 to Egypt in March 2016.
This time around, the team will be at ‘home’ having to play all three group stage matches at what is regarded as the largest stadium in Egypt and the second largest in Africa after the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The stadium sits 86,000 spectators and Alexandria is Egypt’s second largest city after Cairo.
It is at this sumptuous arena that the Super Eagles will confront debutants, Burundi on Saturday before taking on Guinea on June 26 and Madagascar on June 30.
Super Eagles could remain in Alexandria for the Round of 16 match if the team tops Group B before moving to Cairo for the quarterfinals.
