World Champions Germany are locked in talks with Nigeria over a potential friendly game which will help both teams fine tune their preparations for the World Cup 2018 in Russia according to coach of the Nigerian team.
Gernot told newsmen in Abuja yesterday that talks are already at an advanced stage with Germany over a friendly game, which will most likely take place next year provided both teams are not in the same group for the World Cup.
The draws for the World Cup will take place in December, and Rohr said provided Nigeria are not in the same group with Germany, there’s every tendency of both teams squaring up in a friendly few months before the World Cup.
“ A good preparation is what we are hoping to have, games against top teams will help us before the World Cup. We have already told Germany that we will like to play them in any of the FIFA International friendly windows between May and June provided we are not in the same World Cup group”, the coach said.
