Why Nigeria, Senegal friendly will be played behind closed doors

Sunday’s International friendly match between Nigeria and Senegal, will be played behind closed doors.

This was confirmed by the Super Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, who also stated that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has given a go-ahead.

According to him, both coaches have made this joint decision, as they hope to use the practice game to run through some last-minute tactical experiments on their respective teams.

“Both coaches agreed that the game should be played behind closed doors and this move has been backed by CAF.

“The plan is to ensure that the game is away from public view — and overzealous challenges.

“The team trains twice a day and are prepared for the task of doing the country proud,” Ibitoye said according to Goal.
