Possible Rescheduling of Nigeria, Brazil Friendly Looms

Nigeria, Brazil Friendly Could Be Rescheduled Over Huge Setbacks

Super Eagles of Nigeria’s October 13  international friendly match with Brazil seem threatened.

The game which is scheduled to hold at the iconic National Stadium in Singapore may be cancelled or rescheduled at the last minutes unless the London-based organisers, Pitch International, are able to sort out travelling arrangement.

GoalBall learnt that the players and Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) delegation crew were yet to be issued necessary travelling documents including visas.

“The organisers of the match which is Pitch International actually messed up the invitation letter particularly for those expected to come from Nigeria and that was why the Nigerian delegation was unable to travel on Tuesday.

“Due to this fact, the Nigerian delegation did not receive their visas which they should have received on Monday or latest Tuesday because they were expected to depart for Singapore by 6:00pm on Tuesday.

“Now, we have difficulties because without visas nobody would be able to travel.

“Will the match take place? We don’t know,” a source told GoalBall.

But in a telephone conversation with Super Eagles Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye, he said optimistically: “We are still in Abuja and we are most likely travelling on Wednesday because we have been assured that the visas would be ready for us to travel for the match.”
