Super Eagles To Face Costa Rica In Int’l Friendly


Super Eagles will face 1989 Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football champions, Costa Rica, in an international friendly scheduled to hold in November.

This was confirmed by the Nigeria Football Federation on their official Twitter handle on Thursday.

The three-time African champions were initially scheduled to play Guinea Bissau in a double-header Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in the FIFA international break.

Nigeria recently faced Algeria in an international friendly game in Oran which they lost 2-1. They are also set to face 2016 European champions, Portugal, in another international friendly on November 17.

It will be the first time that Nigeria and Portugal will meet at the senior level even though both countries played against each other three times at the U-20 World Cup with Portugal winning all three meetings (twice in 1989 and 2013).
