Preparations are ongoing for the senior national team of Nigeria to play a friendly game in Spain after their dead rubber World Cup 2018 Qualifiers tie against Algeria in Algiers.
Nigeria are already through to the World Cup which will be holding in Russia next year, with a game to spare hence the need for the team to start lining up friendly games in readiness for the World Cup.
The Eagles were earlier bid to play a friendly game in Morocco, but it is now looking likely that the venue for their planned Friendly game next month will be in Spain and not Morocco.
” Morocco was initially suggested as venue for the friendly but it may now likely hold in Spain”, Onyewuchi Nwachukwu wrote in his report for the print version of Sporting Life newspaper.
However the team they will be playing against is yet to be confirmed as most teams are demanding Nigeria field the full compliment of their squad for the game, as they have been told about plans by Nigeria to field a second strength team against Algeria, which will be played before the planned Friendly.
