Super Eagles tackle Ukraine

President of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick has announced that the Super Eagles will face Ukraine in a post-AFCON friendly next month.

Ukraine are ranked 25th in the world and have never played against Nigeria’s senior national team.

That makes the match a historic game for both countries if it goes ahead.

According to him, the game will be played in Kiev on September 10, three days after a European Championship qualifier against Lithuania.

Amaju Pinnick said in a statement, ”Finally, we have secured a Grade A international friendly match for the Super Eagles against the Ukraine in Kiev, on the 10th of September.

”It is part of our on-going drive to expose as many players as we can to global football, so this should be another springboard for our young stars.”
