We would have loved to play in Abuja too. Although there is a very big stadium there, the grass is very bad.
And it does not take much to get good grass in a stadium. “As for Lagos, I have seen the national stadium and it is in a bad state. I hear government has a lot of commitments. The other stadium in Lagos has a synthetic pitch which is not good.” Rohr pointed out that it would be good for the national team to have a lot of options so that every section of the country could have the opportunity of hosting the team’s matches.
Uyo, Asaba, Port Harcourt. But I think Uyo remains the best stadium with the best pitch. As for Asaba, the grass is barely six months old.
They need to work on the grass said the the coach,Lagos was capable of drawing up to 90,000 fans on a good match day. “It would have been wonderful to play under such an atmosphere where fans would generate enough support for the team.” The National Stadium in Lagos was the slaughter slab for the national team in the 1970s and ’80s.
