EXCLUSIVE: NFF Plan Four Super Eagles Friendlies For 2017

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:

The Super Eagles will play at least four quality friendly matches next year before the World Cup qualifiers resume in August, the Nigeria Football Federation have told Completesportsnigeria.com.


Consultant to the NFF, Tunde Adelakun, who disclosed this in a chat said that he has contacted some countries to agree for friendly international matches that will keep the Super Eagles in shape for the World Cup clash against Cameroon in August next year.

“It is painful that the Super Eagles will not be featuring at the Africa Cup of Nations but that does not mean that they will be idle during the period of AFCON in January/February 2017. The Eagles will be busy before our next World Cup game in August because we shall exploit the IFA windows in March and June,” Adelakun told Completesportsnigeria.com in Abuja.

“We are talking to some European and African countries to give us friendly games in March and June and I can assure you that we shall organize some top quality friendly matches for Super Eagles. The idea is to play about four friendly matches during the two FIFA windows before the clash with Cameroon in August.”

On the chances of Super Eagles qualifying for the World Cup in Russia, Adelakun expressed confidence that Nigeria will make it to the 2018 World Cup, adding that the plan is to qualify well ahead of the last game against Algeria.
“We surely want to go to Russia but we need prayers and support from Nigerians to achieve that goal,” he added.
