Gernot Rohr's wards are scheduled to play reigning AFCON champions, the Desert Foxes of Algeria on October 9 and follow up four days later with the clash with the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia at the same venue.

According to,  Austrian government have given room for a maximum 10,000 fans to watch matches in the country as the European nation relaxes its coronavirus restrictions.

Locally in the Austrian league, only home fans are allowed to attend matches, with away fans barred for now.

Head of Austria Bundesliga, Christian Ebenbauer said: “Football thrives on emotions, not only on the pitch but also on the stands. So it wasn't an easy decision for clubs to take, to allow as many home fans as possible and to do without visiting clubs' fans during the coronavirus restrictions.”

The Nigeria gaffer has already invited 25 players to prosecute both games, with Leicester City's Wilfred Ndidi injured and ruled out.
