Nigeria To Play Catalunya In Friendly GameAccording to the online edition of mundodeportivo.com, widely regarded as the mouthpiece of Catalunya, the Super Eagles of Nigeria will trade tackles with the National Team of Catalunya in an exhibition game, billed to be held on January 2, 2013 at Cornella-El Prat Stadium.

The friendly match at
Cornella-El Prat Stadium, the home ground of Espanyol, is one of the tune up games to prepare Stephen Keshi and his charges for next year's African Cup of Nations in South Africa.

This won't be the first meeting between both National Teams. The biggest win recorded by
Catalunya was against a makeshift Nigeria selection in December, 1998.

At least 12 players from Barcelona - including Victor Valdes, Puyol, Pique, Xavi and Cesc Fàbregas - are expected to be called up by coach Johan Cruyff for the tie against the West Africans.
