Super Falcons and Barcelona Femeni striker Asisat Oshoala has replied angry Sierra Leone star Kei Kamara who lamented the poor state of mattress and pillows in his hotel room in Benin.
The Leone Stars arrived in the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos 48 hours before the encounter before flying straight to Benin where the match will take place.
Upon arrival at the team hotel, Kamara shared a clip of himself unable to sleep on the bed in his room and further branded the mattress as ‘box’.

He complained about the pillows and added that all the hotel personnel kept telling him was "don’t worry, we’ll fix it in the morning."
And in her response, Asisat Oshoala took to her Twitter handle to disclose why hotel beds in Benin are never soft.
According to her, boys in the ancient city are quick to spoil hotel beds.
The situation has generated controversies and the Sierra Leone FA has vowed to launch an investigation into Kamara’s allegation.
The FA said in a statement:
"The Sierra Leone Football Association will launch an investigation into a viral video posted by Sierra Leone team striker Kei Kamara in which he is defaming a hospitality establishment at which the national team delegation, including the minister of sports Ibrahim Nyelenkeh and other top shots are currently residing."
Nigeria play the Leone Stars on Friday evening, November 13 at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin before moving to Freetown for the return leg scheduled for November 17.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that in adherence to the directives from the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Nigeria's game against Sierra Leone will be played without fans.
But that didn't stop football-loving fans from marching to the stadium to welcome the players as they arrived for a closed-door training.
One player, in particular, seems to be the fans' favourite as the players got down from the team bus and that is Victor Osimhen.
The Napoli striker was greeted with a loud cheer by the fans as some expressed their love for him while he made his way into the stadium.
