NFF Board To Finalise Arrangements Ahead Of Algeria-Nigeria 2018 WC Qualifier

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has directed its general secretary Dr. Mohammed Sanusi to quickly tidy up all arrangements regarding next week’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match between Nigeria and Algeria.
Although Nigeria has already qualified for next year's tournament in Russia, the country’s FA says it is taking the match as a serious matter.
“The temptation is there to rest on oars because we have already qualified. But we would not do that. I am happy the technical crew led by the Technical Adviser has already made it known they would be fielding Nigeria’s best squad on the day," NFF President Amaju Pinnick said.

“The Secretariat must quickly finalise all arrangements. The match in Constantine must be seen as a FIFA World Cup preparation match, just like the one against Argentina in Russia four days later. We will go with our best and give our best, to get in the FIFA World Cup mood."
The match at the Stade Mohamed Hamlaoui in Algeria, will kick off at 8.30pm Nigerian time.
