Zimbabwe In Advanced Talks With NFF Over Pre-Africa Cup Of Nations Friendly
The Zimbabwe Football Association are in advanced talks with their Nigerian counterparts over a proposed friendly before the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

ZIFA President Felton Kamambo was in Lagos on Monday to attend the NFF Awards and it is believed that he held discussions with Nigerian Federation chiefs about a three-week training camp in Lagos and the friendly match with the Super Eagles.

''He is in Nigeria for two reasons. He was invited for the Aiteo awards, and also to sort out the logistics for a friendly match with Nigeria,'' a source told News Day Harare.

''The Nigeria Federation are also offering a three-week camp for the Warriors. During that time, the Warriors will play Nigeria and Ivory Coast who have also shown genuine interest.

''The president will also use the occasion to organise at least one more friendly match with one other team preferably from West or North Africa.''

Nigeria have met Zimbabwe six times in the past, with the Super Eagles winning four matches, drawing one and losing once 38 years ago in a friendly.
