Super Eagles Proposed Asia Friendly Games Canceled

Written By: SD Reporter

The Super Eagles of Nigeria planned Friendly games in Asia against probably South Korea and China has been called off according to a representative of the match agent of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

A representative of Eurodata, the match agents in charge of the Super Eagles friendly games said plans were already at an advance stage to play two games in Asia with China and South Korea the most likely option.

However the plans have now been cancelled as the FIFA free day for the month of March will be when the Super Eagles will take on Seychelles in the race to be at AFCON 2019.

“The games in Asia are as good as off unless CAF postpones the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers, because FIFA rules says you can play games during the international break as long as the distance is not more than 5 hours”, the representative told Owngoalnigeria.com.

“Nigeria are away to Seychelles in the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers, hence the planned friendly games in March won’t hold anymore. Already talks have taken place with China and South Korea but the games are now off.”
