The Nigeria Football Federation may have settled for the Stallions of Burkina Faso on the 27th of March, days after playing against the Teranga Lions of Senegal in London.

The NFF had earlier arranged friendlies against Senegal and Ghana but the latter pulled out.

Reasons were not given why the Black Stars of Ghana opted out, but the NFF swiftly moved to secure another top side as replacement, the Stallions of Burkina Faso.


The Super Eagles have the opportunity to know their full potency, after friendlies against the Teranga Lions of Senegal and Stallions of Burkina Faso.

The tune up matches are in preparation for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

According to the NFF, the senior male national team will be taking on Senegal on March 23 in London, and the game against Burkina Faso will be four days later, in alliance with the FIFA window break next month.
