After days of speculations and fears over the much speculated international friendly between Nigeria and Scotland at the Craven Cottage in London, Nigerian Head Coach, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi has given his blessings to the encounter, scheduled for May 28.
The Nigeria Football Federation had already given provisional approval for the game while awaiting final words from match organizers and the coach of both sides. And on Monday in far away Atlanta, United States, Keshi declared his readiness for the game and thanked the NFF for always being forward looking as it concerns Nigeria’s preparations for Mundial 2014 in Brazil.
Hear Keshi: “We are delighted to be playing the Scottish team in London as part of our pre World Cup preparations and we know it would be a real test in front of a passionate crowd. We hope that many London based Nigerians will come out en masse to give the Eagles a rousing send forth ahead of Brazil 2014”.
NFF match agent, Jairo Pachon, said all loose ends in the proposed game have now be tied up adding that he foresees a very entertaining game in London for both countries. The game is expected to be one of the Super Eagles last warm up games before the World Cup kicks off on June 12 in Brazil.
