Nigeria Super Eagles to play Portugal in an international friendly.

Nigeria Super Eagles to play Portugal in an international friendly.

 Nigeria Super Eagles will play 2016 European champions Portugal in an international friendly in September.

Muhammad Sanusi, Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation, revealed this.

During the FIFA international break, the three-time African champions were supposed to play Guinea Bissau in a double-header Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

However, with the Confederation of African Football postponing the qualifiers until March 2023, the NFF is hard at work organizing a grade A friendly for the Eagles.

According to Sanusi, preparations for the friendly match between Nigeria and Portugal are well underway.

“We are working on arranging a grade A friendly game with Portugal ahead of next FIFA window,” Sanusi told The PUNCH.

“Following the postponement of the AFCON a friendly game is necessary for the Eagles.

“Arrangements are in full gear and we are close to finalising the details. Once that is done a statement will be released by the Nigeria Football Federation.”

Nigeria and Portugal will meet for the first time at the senior level, despite the fact that they met three times at the U-20 World Cup, with Portugal winning all three meetings (twice in 1989 and 2013).
