The Super Eagles will take on the Costa Rican senior national football team in an international friendly in San Jose on Nov. 9.

Jairo Pachon, the FIFA Match Agent of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), on Thursday said the match is a sort of invitational for the three-time African champions.

“Nigeria have been invited to the central American nation as part of major activities to send forth the Los Ticos to the FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar.

The game is scheduled for the National Stadium in San Jose, the capital city of Costa Rica, and will kick off at 8 p.m. local time which is 3 a.m. of Nov. 10 in Nigeria.

Costa Rica hosted this year’s FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup finals where Nigeria’s Falconets reached the quarter-finals, defeating France, Korea Republic and Canada in the group phase.

Already, the Super Eagles have another friendly lined up against Portugal in Lisbon on Nov. 17.(NAN)
