Brazil 2014: Nigeria to play friendly match against Croatia

Super Eagles of Nigeria

Nigeria is preparing for World Cup.

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has disclosed that it is close to tying up a World Cup friendly for the Super Eagles against the Croatian national team.

Nigeria will face Mexico on March 5 in Atlanta as part of her preparations for the Brazil 2014 World Cup; and officials have now said they are about to seal another friendly against Croatia.

“We are 95% close to sealing a friendly against Croatia ahead of the World Cup,” NFF spokesperson, Ademola Olajire, told journalists in Abuja on Friday.

Nigeria seeks to play Croatia because it could afford the team a chance to play against a team with a similar style to that of World Cup Group F rivals Bosnia-Herzegovina.
