Nigeria will have a go at Liberia in a friendly on Tuesday in Monrovia, media aide of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye, has said.
The Eagles are expected to arrive in Lagos on Sunday after their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier with Seychelles in Victoria and leave immediately for Monrovia.
Speaking on Top Sports on Top Radio on Friday, Ibitoye revealed that “the team will land in Lagos on September 9 and leave for Monrovia for the friendly.”
On the artificial turf of the Stade Linite stadium in Seychelles, Ibitoye said, “The team trained on Thursday and they have had a feel of the turf at the stadium. Although most of our players are used to playing on natural grass, they are determined to get a win, in spite of the artificial turf.
“Seychelles is a small country and the pitch was built for them by Fifa some years ago and since it has been approved by Caf for the match, we have to play there.”
Nigeria need a win to revive their hopes of making it to Cameroon next year.
They are third in the Group E standing after losing their opening game in the qualifying series to South Africa last year.
