All things being equal, the Senior Men National Team, Super Eagles, will take on the Mena of Niger in an international friendly match in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, September 8.
NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, told thenff.com on Monday that discussions are on-going with the Rivers State Government to have the match at the Adokiye Amiesiamaka Stadium – the venue where the U-23 team defeated Congo 2-1 in an Africa U-23 Cup of Nations qualifier on July 19.
“We are holding talks with the Rivers State Government, and the NFF is positive that the Super Eagles and Mena will play at the Amiesiamaka Stadium on September 8.
“The truth is that we still have a few loose ends to tighten, before we can say that the match is sealed. Of course, we have confirmation from the Niger Football Federation that they have accepted to play the Super Eagles.”
The letter from the Federation Nigerienne de Football, addressed to the General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, and dated 6th August, 2015, stated: “We write to confirm our participation on the said match in Port Harcourt on the 8th September and our collaboration with Mr. Jairo Pachon, FIFA Match Agent for the success of the organization.”
