Super Eagles Will Face Portugal In A Friendly Game.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Secretary General, Muhammad Sanusi, has revealed that the Super Eagles of Nigeria will take on star player Cristiano Ronaldo’s captained Portugal in an international friendly in September.

According to the reports, Nigeria and Portugal have never clashed at the senior level but both countries met three times at the U-20 World Cup with Portugal winning all three meetings (twice in 1989 and 2013).

 The game is expected to hold in September, as the NFF wants to take advantage of the FIFA window following the postponement of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers till March next year, according to Sanusi.

Sanusi on Wednesday, August 3, said;

“We are all aware that qualifiers were fixed for September but because of the change of date of the AFCON qualifiers which has been moved to next year March, therefore the NFF has made it a duty to always use the FIFA window to play quality friendly matches with the aim of keeping the team in good shape.

“That’s why we use the contact and connection of our coach (Jose) Peseiro who is a Portuguese to arrange a quality friendly match with the Portuguese national team”.

Portugal will take on the Black Stars of Ghana in the group stage at this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
