Super Eagles will play two friendly matches against Cameroon and Congo next month in Belgium, the president of the country’s football association said on Monday.
“I can confirm that we will play against Congo on October 8 in Antwerp and against Cameroon on October 11 in Brussels,” supersport.com quoted Amaju Pinnick as saying on Channels Television.
Congo denied Nigeria a spot at the Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea earlier this year by finishing second in the qualifying group behind South Africa.
Pinnick said the Nigeria Football Federation was also eyeing another friendly with a North African team before the Super Eagles’ 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt in March next year.
Tunisia and Algeria are being considered as possibilities for the fixture in November, he added.
Egypt currently leads Group G with six points from two matches. Nigeria lies second on four points.
The two sides clash in a double-header in what is being seen as the decider for automatic qualification for the tournament in Gabon in two years’ time.
