Nigeria’s Super Eagles have gotten a friendly game against the Polish National team as part of their preparations for next year’s World Cup finals in Russia, The Poland Football Association (PZPN) has confirmed.
“We can confirm that on March 23, we’re playing with Nigeria, a decision on the venue of the match is yet to be made.” PZPN spokesman Jakub Kwiatkowski said.
Poland see the three-time African champions as similar opposition to Senegal who they will play in Group H at the World Cup, while Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr is confident that ‘The White and Reds’ will help prepare his squad for their opening Group D game against Croatia in Russia on 16 June.
“The opening game is the most important match and we hope to prepare for it – against opponents similar to Croatia,” Rohr said.
These will be the first time both countries will meet at Senior level.
