Well, the NFF have done it again. A few months ago, the Nigerian Football Federation announced upcoming friendlies with Brazil on the 29th of March in Uyo, but the Selecao, went on to announce a friendly with Chile and denied ever agreeing to play Nigeria in the first place. Last week, the NFF announced friendlies with the Ivory Coast and South Africa with the latter coming up on the 29th of March. Earlier today however, the South African Football Association’s communication manager, Dominic Chimhavi refuted any of such reports, stating that there would be no match between Nigeria and South Africa in March.
The Super Eagles are set to take on Bolivia in Uyo on the 26th of March (if they actually contacted the Bolivians) and were seemingly on course to take on South Africa on the 29th of this month but, Chimhavi in an interview with representatives from goal.com told the reporters that there had not been any talks between the NFF and SAFA concerning a friendly match talk more of agreement upon a date.
Nigeria would now have to face the embarrassment of being denied again and would have to look for another opponent for the Super Eagles for the 29th of March or would excuse the players for an early return to their clubs.
