NFF Sets The Record Straight On England FriendlyThe Nigeria Football Federation has dismissed suggestions that the Super Eagles will play a friendly with The Three Lions in the foreseeable future.

General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi has admitted that there is nothing concrete despite NFF supremo Amaju Pinnick visiting the Chairman of The FA, Mr. Greg Dyke on Tuesday.

“It is understandable that any news of a proposed friendly between Nigeria and England would generate global interest, as it has done. Both teams last played any match at senior level about 13 years ago.

 “However, we must say at this stage that the proposal is still at the level of discussions and nothing concrete has been agreed as to when the match will hold.

“We are awaiting feedback from the FA and will report on the outcome accordingly,” Sanusi said in a press release.

The Super Eagles have not tackled England in an exhibition game since November 1994, in which they lost 1 - 0.
