The senior national male team of Nigeria is set to face Ghana Black Stars B team in an international friendly.
The Nigerian Football federation led by Amaju Pinnick is planning to secure an avenue for the national team in October and has therefore shortlisted the Black Stars B among the teams he will play.
The Black Stars managed by Coach Paa Kwasi Fabian failed to perform well in their last international break losing four games in a row.
“This is the launchpad we are providing for you to showcase your talents,” Pinnick told the media.
“This team (Eagles B) is our pride, and we will keep you and monitor you because you are the next big thing in Nigerian football.”
“In October, we will be flying the team to Baltimore for friendly games against Ghana possibly, Cameroon and Canada, maybe. We will sort that out in the coming weeks,” he added.
“We will tidy up all the documentation. You will be playing at the 73,000 capacity M&T Bank Stadium.”
