It has been confirmed, Nigeria will play Senegal and Burkina Faso
”The two teams that the Super Eagles will play have been confirmed. Nigeria will face the Teranga Lions of Senegal on March 23rd and then meet Burkina Faso on the 27th,” Ibitoye said.
The matches were secured to prepare the Super Eagles for 2018 World Cup qualifying games.“Both games will be in London and it will provide us with a stern test as we prepare for the Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup qualifiers.
“We had a few teams in mind, but we have finally received confirmation for Senegal and Burkina Faso. The Ghana deal didn’t work, presumably because they don’t have a coach now after Avram Grant resigned.
But all have been settled now, Senegal and Burkina Faso will be the two teams the Eagles will face in the March FIFA window.
Senegal was eliminated in the quarter final of this year’s AFCON hosted by Gabon, while Burkina Faso got to the semi-final of the tournament.
