The Super Eagles of Nigeria will take on the Black Stars of Ghana in an international friendly which will be played in Nigeria before the start of the Africa Cup of Nations according to coach of the Nigerian team Gernot Rohr.
Both teams will use the game to fine tune their preparations for the 2019 AFCON with Nigeria keen on playing another friendly game before the tournament and talks with Senegal is progressing nicely.
Speaking after the draws for the tournament was made Rohr confirmed the games will help him decide on his team and also play a role in helping them prepare adequately for the tournament, where they will play in group B with the likes of Guinea, Madagascar and Burundi.
Ghana will use the game to test their readiness ahead of the start of their campaign at the tournament where they will begin their quest for the title in group F with Cameroon, Benin Republic and Guinea-Bissau.
” But we can be confident because we’ll have good preparations and friendlies, one normally against Ghana in Nigeria and the second one I think against Senegal here in Egypt,” Rohr noted.
