NFF Yet To Accept New Date For Eagles Against Cameroon Clash In Uyo


The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are yet to accept the shift in date done by FIFA for their World Cup 2018 Qualifiers tie against Cameroon in Uyo.


FIFA shifted the date for the clash at the Nest of Champions Stadium in Uyo from the earlier date of September 1st to the 30th of August due to issues bordering on Television broadcast.

Nigeria have however not replied FIFA over the new date communicated to them last week as they hope to persuade FIFA to see reasons why the game should not be moved backward.

Informed sources at the NFF told this portal that a fresh request for the tie to hold on the 1st of September will be submitted later this week to FIFA for consideration.

Part of the reason why the NFF want the game to be played on the 1st of September ‎is to have a full house at the Stadium, which is not guaranteed if the tie is played on a Friday, which happens to be the 30th of August date announced by FIFA.
