The Super Eagles main team will be used for the tie. List of players for the match has been sent to the NFF. Camp will open on Monday. Players and officials are expected to arrive camp same day,” he said.

He also added that the Eagles list for the friendly would be released soon.

The friendly game is billed for Stade Mohamed Hamlaoui, Constastine. The Algeria team will host the African Nations Championship (CHAN) early next year. The North Africans will also take on Sudan in another friendly on Friday, September 29.

In another development, the Nigeria Football Federation and the Portuguese Football Federation have signed a formal agreement for an international friendly on Thursday, November 17, 2022 at the Estadio Jane Alvalade Lisbon.
