More friendly matches for Super Eagles

Nigeria may get more friendly matches added to their build-up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil according to the Nigeria Football Federation.

The Super Eagles are already scheduled to face Scotland, Greece and USA leading up to June’s World Cup.

The General Secretary of the NFF, Musa Amadu, told media yesterday that a fourth friendly could be squeezed into the Super Eagles’ schedule if coach Stephen Keshi wanted it.

“We’re putting all measures in place to ensure that the team is properly prepared for the World Cup and that is why we have lined up friendlies up until June 7.

“And if the coach accepts, we could squeeze in one more game before our first game at the World Cup,” said Amadu.

Group F consists of Nigeria, Iran, Argentina and Bosnia-Herzegovina with the Super Eagles’ big clash against Argentina happening on June 24.

Nigeria face Iran in their opening fixture of the world showpiece on June 16 and a win will be settle the team down well in their pursuit of World Cup glory.

“It is very important that the Super Eagles win their first group game against Iran. This would go a long way to determine how far the team would go at the World Cup,” Amadu added.
