Super Eagles head coachGernot Rohr has attributed the Super Eagles incapacity to claim three points against Sierra Leone on Tuesday to the terrible condition of the Siaka Stevens stadium.
Rohr also questioned the long ball strategies of the home team.
The Eagles settled for a 0-0 draw with the Leone Stars in the reverse fixture of their match day 4 Group L 2021 AFCON qualifier.
The draw saw the Eagles continue to be top with eight points after four games whilst Sierra Leone are third on three points.
Reflecting after the game, Rohr praised the overall performance of his players, singling out Maduka Okoye for his spectacular display.
“The Team did well especially our goalkeeper he had a very good match. Last time he conceded four goals which was not his fault and today he showed everyone what he can do.
“Our defence did well but the pitch is very difficult to play good football, and they were playing long balls.
“The points means we stay top of our group and I believe we are in the right direction.”
The Eagles next game in the qualifiers is away to Benin Republic in March 2021.
