Super Eagles

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, officials confirmed on Monday morning that Wednesday’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and South Africa’s Bafana Bafana will now start at 6pm.

“We got information that the match will now kick off at 6pm, and not 5pm as earlier slated,” NFF’s Head of International, Bola Oyeyode, said on Monday.

The 90 minutes match at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium will earn Nigeria a ticket to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations to be hosted by Equatorial Guinea.

The match coordination meeting will take place from 7pm on Tuesday at the Hotel L’Meridien, to be coordinated by Match Commissioner, Ghanaian Laryea Louis.

Also, the itinerary of the South African contingent changed, with officials confirming the team would travel direct by chartered flight from Johannesburg to Uyo, arriving at 8pm.

FIFA/CAF Match Commissioner, Paul Bassey, informed the Akwa Ibom State Government about the need for a landing permit for the South African delegation.
