NFF clears the air on Nigeria/England proposed friendly

The Nigerian Football Federation through its General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, on Thursday made clarification on the new making the rounds about the proposed friendly between the Super Eagles and the Three Lions of England.

He stated that the meeting between the NFF president Mr Amaju Pinnick and Chairman of English FA, Mr Greg Dyke has been overblown. (According to reports on the Federations Twitter account @thenff)

''It is understandable that any news of a proposed friendly between Nigeria and England would generate global interest, as it has done.

''However, we must say at this stage that the proposal is still at the level of discussions and nothing concrete has been agreed as to when the match will hold. We are awaiting feedback from the FA and will report on the outcome accordingly.''

Both teams last met at senior level about 13 years ago.
