Nigeria’s
Super Eagles may return to Kaduna in continuation of the AFCON 2019
qualifying games.
This
is as a result of Gernot Rohr’s visit to the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in
Kaduna for inspection on Wednesday.
Nigeria play away to
Seychelles in Victoria on Match day 2 of the series on Friday, 7th
September and must then entertain Libya’s Mediterranean Knights in
Nigeria on Matchday 3 in the second week of October.
Rohr checked out the
facilities at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in company with NFF’s 2nd
Vice President, Shehu Dikko and Super Eagles’ Team Administrator,
Dayo Enebi Achor.
Officials confirmed to
thenff.com that former Germany defender Rohr will on Friday this week
release his list of invited players for the away clash with
Seychelles.
After hosting Libya on
10th October, Nigeria will play away to the Knights three days later,
before flying to South Africa for the return against the Bafana
Bafana on 17th November.
The last match of the
series will see the Eagles hosting Seychelles on 22nd March 2019.
In the opener to the
series in June 2017, the Eagles lost 0-2 to the Bafana Bafana in Uyo.
The Stephen Keshi Stadium
in Asaba had been rumoured to be on the cards to host the Libya game
while the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt got a test tun
in the pre- World Cup friendly game against Congo.
The last time Nigeria
played in Kaduna was a 2017 AFCON qualifier against Egypt that ended
1-1.
