Maja poses with other members of the Super Eagles in Ukraine

 

 

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) may utilize the October FIFA window to line up two strong opposition to prepare the team for their back to back Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone in November, AOIFootball.com reports.

 

The Eagles were initially meant to play in September according to the NFF President Amaju Pinnick, but the ban on international flights by the Federal Government of Nigeria could not make it happen as very important members of the Technical crew would not have been able to make the trip.

 

However, Coach Gernot Rohr, in different interviews has said he would want to play a game during the international break and that may come to light with the Federation planning to wrap up discussions with a number of countries on the possibility of having two friendly games.

 

It has also been boosted with the lift of the ban on international travel from the 5th of September.

 

The FIFA window is to open between 5-13 October.

 

The games will be a good test as Gernot Rohr is expected to try out a number of new faces.
