No FIFA green light for Nigeria-Ghana friendly


indexNigeria’s quest to play Ghana in an international friendly in London next month (April) has been scuttled due to a FIFA directive.According to FIFA regulations, no country should play two games across two continents in three days.

Local media reports Monday said that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) had announced the Super Eagles would play Bolivia on March 26 in Uyo in southeastern Nigeria, Africa before taking on the Black Stars on 29 March in London, Europe.

With this development, the Ghana Football Association can now consider proposals from teams including Australia.

It has the option of playing all two matches during the FIFA free window next month either in Europe or Asia.

Ghana finished second at the just ended 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea after losing 9-8 on penalties to Cote d�Ivoire.

The Super Eagles were seeking to use the game against Ghana to kick-start their preparations for the 2017 African qualifiers.
