Super Eagles versus Bolivia friendly will hold on march 26, NFF insists


Report gathered that the Nigeria Football Federation has insisted that the Super Eagles will play a friendly match with Bolivia in Uyo on Thursday, March 26.

NFF general secretary Musa Amadu dismissed a report in the media that suggested that the match had been called off.

“Nothing could be farther from the truth. As I speak with you, the Bolivia Football Federation has purchased return flight tickets for their players and officials and other delegation members to the match,” said Amadu.

“Everything has been finalised and the delegation of Bolivia will arrive in Lagos on March 24, and then fly to Uyo for the match. Certainly, this kind of report does not augur well for well-laid programmes.”

The Super Eagles will take on the South Americans in Uyo before playing South Africa in Nelspruit on Sunday, March 29.

The Eagles have climbed to 41st place on the Fifa rankings released on Thursday while Bolivia are 92nd and South Africa are in the 55th spot.
