On the next available FIFA window and Nigeria’s hope of playing a friendly game, he said the Super Eagles will play a South American country.

Mr. Chris Green said 2013 was a record breaking year for Nigerian football.

“2013 was wonderful, it has been good for football for Nigeria in sports, from the history that I have from 1945 till date Nigerian has never have it so good in terms of performance, it has been very rosy”.

He said the NFF will ensure that 2014 sustains or surpasses the 2013 tempo.
