NFF MAKES FINAL DECISION FOR CALABR TO HOST SUPER EAGLES


The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has ratified the decision that the super eagles of Nigeria will play their 2014 Fifa world Cup qualifying game against Namibia on June 3 and Rwanda in a 2013 Africa Nation’s Cup qualifier on June 17 at the UJ Esuene Stadium in Calabar.
This decision follows waves of discontent over the initial choice of the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna to host both games due to security concerns.

NFF President, Aminu Maigari said the decision to select Calabar was reached following a meeting with Patrick Ekeji the Director General of the Nigeria Sports Commission.

Nigeria will take on Namibia on the opening day of the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier on June 3 before facing Malawi in Blantyre on match day 2 on June 9.

The Super Eagles will then return to Nigeria to clash with the Amavubi of Rwanda in the return leg of a 2013 African Cup of Nations qualifying fixture on Sunday, June 17.
