NFF backtracks, says Eagles will play Togo in France

Written By: SD Reporter


The Nigeria Football Federation has said that the Super Eagles will play two international friendly matches against Corsica and Togo.

The NFF had earlier told TheCable that the Eagles will only play Corsica and immediately return to Nigeria.

Demola Olajire, Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) media director, had also noted that the Eagles will not converge for a training camp in France.

“The Eagles will play just one tune-up match against Corsica on May 26 and leave for Uyo two days later to complete preparations for the game in the Akwa Ibom state capital,” Olajire had said.

But the NFF has now said the games – against Togo and Corsica – will serve as warm-up for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.

The Super Eagles will take on Corsica in Ajaccio on May 26 while the match against the Hawks of Togo will be played in Paris on June 1.
