Nigeria's next opponents in the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier, Tanzania, will host Uganda in a CHAN 2016 qualifying game on Saturday at the Amman Stadium in Zanzibar, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The Taifa Stars who will host the Super Eagles in match day-2 of the 2017 AFCON qualifiers on September 5, will be using the game against the Cranes of Uganda as a dress rehearsal for the big clash against coach Stephen Keshi's led Eagles.
Tanzania were defeated 3-0 by Egypt in their first 2017 AFCON qualifying match on Sunday, June 14, a day after the Nigerian side defeated Chad 2-0 in their 2017 AFCON qualifying opener.
The Tanzanian national team handlers have not revealed their plans for Saturday's game but the Ugandans have already made their squad list public.
Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi have informed that there could be new players invited to the national team for the game against Tanzania in September, and later against Egypt, on the road to Gabon 2017 African Cup of Nations.
The Eagles will be without Lazio midfielder Ogenyi Onazi who has been hit with a two-game ban from the match against Chad in Kaduna by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), for an altercation with an opposing player.
