Nigeria’s Super Eagles will play two friendly games in September, depending on the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, NFF President Amaju Melvin Pinnick has revealed.
Pinnick revealed this in a live Instagram session he had with the NFF communications dept on Thursday morning which was monitored by AOIFootball.com.
According to the NFF Supremo, plans to have the Eagles play an African team and a South American team in Paris in September is at 70 percent and when the final conclusions are made, the federation will make it public.
“We have two international friendly games billed for Paris in September and when we conclude the arrangements, which are at 70 percent now, we will make it public,” Pinnick noted.
The Super Eagles, who won bronze at the last AFCON hosted by Egypt, were to play back to back AFCON 2021 qualifiers against Sierra Leone in March, but the games were put off due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus across the world.
