2014 World Cup: Draw To determine Eagles' Friendlies

Nigeria Football Federation has confirmed that the the result of Friday's World Cup Draw in Brazil will determine the friendly matches that will be lined up for Super Eagles before the World Cup proper?

NFF technical committee chairman Chris Green stated:"We are not in a hurry to announce friendly opponents for Eagles.

"I will be in Brazil this week for the World Cup draw and one of my primary duty would be to finalise on possible friendly matches with countries that have the same football culture with our group opponents after the draw."

He added: "You would agree with me that it would not be wise to schedule friendlies that would be of no consequence to preparing the Eagles for the World Cup.

“For instance, if we are paired against South America and Europeans teams it would be out of place to play African sides in friendlies. So, let's just be patient after the draw on Friday."
The FIFA friendly window will reopen in March 2014.
