The Nigeria Football Federation and its FIFA Match Agent, Jairo Pachon have confirmed that the Senior National Team, Super Eagles, will tackle the Senior National Team of Bolivia in  a grade A international friendly in Uyo on Thursday, 26th March.

“We have had to work at a pace to seal agreement for this match, after the Brazilian Football Federation opted out at the last hour. “However, we believe that the Bolivia team will give the Super Eagles a good match, as we continue to work on a second match for the Eagles for either 29th March,” NFF President Amaju Pinnick said yesterday.

The game at the Akwa Ibom Stadium, rated as one of the most magnificent sporting infrastructure on the African continent, will be the first for the Super Eagles A this year as they countenance the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations and 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers later in the year.

“The NFF is committed to ensuring that the Super Eagles are occupied on every FIFA window, with quality games,” Amaju added. The NFF is working assiduously to get the Eagles to play a top –ranked African team away on 29th March, as a result of the Presidential elections taking place on 28th March.
