The Nigerian Men’s senior team, the Super Eagles are set to play a friendly match against Cote D’Ivoire and Tunisia by October.
The friendly matches are to be played in Austria and the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick, has revealed that the matches will take place on October 9th and 13th respectively.
“On the 9th of October, the Super Eagles will play former African champions, Cote D’Ivoire in a friendly game, then face another African giant and former champions Tunisia, four days later, on the 13th. Both games will be held in Austria for a few obvious reasons,” Amaju Pinnick wrote on his Twitter page.
The Eagles are scheduled to also take on Sierra Leone in two qualifying matches for the 2021 Cup of Nations in November.
The matches were to have been played in March, but were rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Nigeria last played in November 2019, a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Lesotho in Maseru, which they won 4-2.
