Nigeria’s NFF to meet to decide crucial match venue
NFF last month stated that the Super Eagles Would take on Namibia come June 3 and Rwanda on the weekend of June 15 and 17 at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna but owing to latest series of terrorism that had hit the city puts the venue to be unsuitable to host such high profile match.
But stronger indications have emerged that the Abuja National Stadium would play host to the Super Eagles World Cup and Nations Cup qualifiers next month.
The poor condition of the pitch had cast doubts on the possibility of the encounters holding in Abuja, a development that forced the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to pick the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna as the alternative venue.
Latest information has, however, put big doubts on matches being played outside the Federal Capital Territory as it was gathered that pressures from the government have given Abuja the green light to stage the matches inspite of the poor state of the pitch.
The executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will meet next week to decide on the venue for the Eagles matches.
