FIFA cancels Nigeria, Ghana friendly

NFF Logo

Fans hoping to watch the Super Eagles take on the Black Stars of Ghana in a friendly planned for London on March 29 will have to wait longer as the world football governing body, FIFA, has cancelled the game as it fails to comply with the regulations of the world body.

The proposed friendly fell short of the directive by FIFA which clearly states that no country should play two games across two continents in three days.

The Eagles are billed to play Bolivia on March 26 in Uyo (Africa) and then take on the Black Stars who narrowly missed winning the Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea three days later in London (Europe).

While the Ghana game is now off the window due to inexplicable negligence of the Nigeria Football Federation, the Federation is believed to be making frantic efforts at getting another African country play the Eagles in order to make the most of the FIFA free window.
