Super Eagles to play two friendly games in March – Official

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has said the Super Eagles would play two yet-to-be-named countries in friendly matches in March.

The General Secretary of the NFF, Musa Amadu, told PREMIUM TIMES in Abuja on Monday that the Eagles would surely be busy in the March FIFA free window.

“I can authoritatively inform you that we have made plans for the Super Eagles to play two quality friendly matches in March,” he said

Mr. Amadu said the nations involved would be revealed in due time adding that the NFF is not yet sure if the Eagles would be playing at home or away.

“When the matches are tied down, we will let you know whether they are all going to be home or away,” he stated.

“We have started the rebuilding process with the friendly matches we played in United Arab Emirates against Ivory Coast and Yemen, discussions are ongoing as we will play two quality friendly matches in March,” he said.

The Super Eagles were originally lined up to play the Brazilian national team in a friendly match in March but that has since been canceled as the Samba Boys have replaced Nigeria with Chile.

    Several issues:
    You keep on hammering the global village concept as a reason for your obsession with the affairs of a nation that is not yours. The Igbo say “ours is ours, but mine is mine.” The US election is a US affair, regardless of your ponderous verbiage to the contrary.
    Like you, Soyinka did not understand the inappropriateness of sticking his nose into polls in a nation he is not citizen of and ineligible to vote in. He compunded the error by publicising his intentions, only to get angry when unfavorable responses come in.
    Why didn’t Soyinka say anything when same-sex marriage became legal in the US? He simply concluded that it was none of his business. Why couldn’t he do the same in this case?
    You speak of the Nigerian Trumpster. If you were not so narrow-minded, operating in a virtue-signalling liberal bastion like Cornell, you would know that Nigerians are not animated by the liberal-conservative dynamic that you take for granted where you are. An overwhelming majority of Nigerians are social conservatives, and they offer nobody any apologies for it.
    If a Nigerian “supports” Trump, that’s his/her business, not yours. Nobody writes boring screeds about people like you who love “Secretary Clinton,” do they?
    The elections have been won and lost. Deal with it. Don’t play the race card; it won’t work. Biden called Obama a “clean Negro.” Hillary called black youths “superpredators.”
    Wasn’t it under your Obama that “Black Lives Matter” emerged? Why don’t you denounce that? Your monomaniacal focus on US racism (look at your archive) without even a causal look at the ethnicity which is the main communal relations challenge in YOUR continent and country is the worst case of Afghanistanism I have ever seen.
    Finally, your writing. Scholarly writing is very different from writing for a non-scholarly audience. You do not seem to know the difference. I suggest you examine the output of Profs Tunji Dare and Okey Ndibe to see how it is done. That, combined with you being a one-issue writer (like Charles “Blowjob” Blow), makes you far less effective than you think you are. Enough.

    Mr. Ademoyo. If you like don’t take Mr. Henry Odukomaiya’s honest advise to stop this adventure in intellectual wilderness. You are conflating issues. Soyinka’s statement and actions following Trumps victory; Trump’s personality; The American elections; your dislike for those you term trolls and Trumpsters. You are not getting the point. The point is This is America. Not Nigeria. Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United States and there is nothing you can do about it. This is not your Nigeria where they annul elections because they don’t like the personality of the winner or he is not from a favorite race or ethnic group. Stop this boring tripe about racism. It does not and will never work. For your information the West Virginia official that made the uncomplimentary remarks about Michelle Obama has been forced out of office. There are more protections in the United States to protect a Nigerian Immigrant/Citizen in the United States than exists in Nigeria to protect a Nigerian. Stop this journey to no where. Like Henry Odukomaiya just advised. Enough! Look for something else to write about.
    Suggestion: Why have the killers of Bridget Agbahime not been charged? For your information, she was beheaded in Kano. A Nigerian beheaded by other Nigerians and the Nigerian State has no solution. Write about that.
