The venues for Super Eagles friendly matches against Congo and Cameroon have been changed, according to latest reports from the Nigeria Football Federation official website.
The coach Sunday Oliseh-led side will now play in Vise (Municipality located in the Walloon province of Liège) and Dendermonde (Municipality located in the Flemish province of East Flanders in the Denderstreek) against DR Congo and Cameroon respectively as against Mons and Denderleeuw as earlier scheduled.
The Super Eagles play the Leopards of Democratic Republic of Congo on Thursday, October 8 and will then confront the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on Sunday, October 11.
The home-based players and team officials for the matches are now expected to travel on Tuesday after visa hitches prevented them from departing for Belgium on Sunday as earlier scheduled.
Meanwhile West Ham United winger Victor Moses has pulled out of the fast approaching friendly engagements of the Super Eagles against the Democratic Republic of Congo and Cameroun.
Moses, in a letter to the Nigeria Football Federation through the Super Eagles’ Administrator, Enebi Achor, said he was pulling out in a precautionary move against injury and this is seen as a setback according to the head coachSunday Oliseh.
Moses was in action on Saturday in West Ham’s 2-2 Premier League draw with Sunderland, setting up one of his side’s goals.
He was taken off early in the second half.
