Super Eagles, Luxembourg Clash Now for May 31


The international friendly match between the Super
Eagles and the national team of Luxembourg has
been brought forward by 24 hours.

A letter to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) by
the Football Association of Luxembourg on Friday
explained that the match, earlier scheduled for 1st
June, had to be moved forward by a day as a result
of the Tour de France cycling competition, with
Luxembourg much involved.

“The change in date will not in any way affect our
program. The entire contingent will move to
Luxembourg from Rouen in France, where we will
play Mali on 27th May. We will still have three days
to train for the match against Luxembourg,” Eagles’
Team Administrator, Enebi Achor, said yesterday.

The match in Luxembourg will take place at 7pm on
Tuesday, May 31, at the Josy Barthel Stadium in that
country’s capital city.

Achor also confirmed that a number of technical and
administrative officials have now been issued
Schengen visas, enabling them to enter the two
countries for the matches.

The NFF has also submitted fresh applications for
those who were earlier denied.

The Super Eagles play Mali’s Les Aiglons in Rouen on
May 27 and play Luxembourg in that country on May
31, as part of preparations for the first matches of
the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying series to be
played later this year.
