Black Stars play Eagles in London

Next month's friendly international game between Nigeria's Super Eagles and Ghana Black Stars will be held in London.

"I can confirm to you that the friendly tie against Ghana will likely take place in London," Nigerian Football Association chairman Ibrahim Galadima said

"We have lined up two friendlies for the Super Eagles, one confirmed against Ghana. I can confirm to you that we have gone very far in concretizing the arrangement against Ghana which will come up on August 16, a Fifa free day.

"We should have another friendly match by the end of August hopefully against a top European country. They are both grade A friendlies just to get the Eagles in shape for the qualifiers starting in September," he disclosed.
