Following the last minute withdrawal of the Sudanese national team from the international friendly against the Super Eagles B team, the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has
scheduled another friendly with Yemen, on Saturday, January 17 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Sudan, which were to tackle the Eagles on January 17 in an international friendly in Dubai shockingly withdraw from the game without giving any reason for their decision.
The Eagles Team Secretary, Dayo Achor, said in order not to distort the schedule of the national team for the New Year, Yemen was approached and accepted to play the Eagles and later Finland on the scheduled dates.
The Nigeria versus Yemen game will be played at the Sevens Stadium in Dubai.
However, Warri Wolves striker, Gbolahan Salami, has left the camp to go and firm up details of his contract with a Serbian side.
In their first test match on arrival in the United Arab Emirates, the Nigeria team led by Coach Daniel Amokachi lost 1-0 to a star-studded Ivorian side in a friendly on Sunday.
