Nigeria Want To Face Senegal, Cote D'Ivoire Next Year, NFF President Pinnick Confirms‎

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President Amaju Pinnick has stated that they are planning a friendly against the Lions of Senegal and Elephants of Cote D'Ivoire due to the similar playing style with 2018 FIFA World Cup opponents, Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

Speaking on the team's preparations ahead of the games, NFF President ‎Amaju Pinnick said: "Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal are teams who play like Cameroon, and we are priming for our next (World Cup) game against Cameroon."

"These friendlies are not yet confirmed but they are at an advanced stage of being finalised." he further stated.

The 'potential' games against West African foes Senegal and Cote d’Ivoire could be played in the FIFA-friendly window in March in London ahead of the Super Eagles of Nigeria's double header clash with Cameroon.
