Super Eagles to face Congo and Cameroon
The Super Eagles will face Congo and Cameroon as part of their preparations for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
The team will face Congo first on the 8th of October, then play Cameroon 3 days later, with both matches being played in Belgium.
The Super Eagles will face either Djibouti or Swaziland in the next round of the qualifiers, and coach Sunday Oliseh believes the friendlies will put the team in good stead.
“The coach believes these two matches will give him an opportunity to access his squad and put them in shape ahead of the World Cup qualifiers,” NFF spokesman Ademola Olajire told BBC Sport.
“With the matches being played in Europe on Fifa official dates against strong opposition, it will enable Mr Oliseh to test his team thoroughly.
“The majority of the players are playing in Europe, making it easier for them to travel to Belgium for these matches.”
The team also face Egypt in the African Nations Cup qualifiers, and the NFF is also planning a match to prepare the team.
“We are working on a friendly against Tunisia or Algeria before the game against Egypt,” said NFF president Amaju Pinnick.
