The proposed match between Nigeria and the Black Stars of Ghana or Togo, will not hold as expected, however, Nigeria will now play next-door neigbour, Niger in a friendly on September 9 in Port Harcourt.

A top NFF official confirmed: “The match against Niger is now confirmed for Port Harcourt after the AFCON qualifier in Tanzania. The other proposals to play other neigbouring countries like Ghana and Togo did not fly.”

However, it is not known if the home based Eagles will prosecute this match as preparation for the CHAN qualifier against Burkina Faso in October or the main Eagles squad.

Port Harcourt was also the proud host city for a crucial CAF U23 Championship qualifier against Congo recently.
