President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick has confirmed a proposed friendly against 2017 AFCON-bound Egypt will no longer be played in January.
He says the friendly was off because there were some conditions Nigeria could not meet like parading the country’s top Europe-based professionals as it will not during a FIFA-friendly window.
Pinnick says the federation is in advanced talks with Ivory coast and Senegal for a possible friendly.
The super eagles are preparing for the 2018 world cup qualifier against Cameroon in August.
The NFF boss explained that both teams were selected because of their similar playing style with cameroon.
