NFF Confirms Nigeria vs South Africa Friendly On March 29

Nigeria will play South Africa in a friendly match on March 29, three days after hosting Bolivia at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium in Uyo. The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), made this announcement on Friday.
Bafana Bafana will host the tie at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit, the same venue where the Eagles played their first two group matches at the Africa Cup of Nations 2013.

"The upcoming game will definitely be another grudge encounter and both countries' coaches would like to put the record straight. Whenever the two nations clash, the entire country comes to a standstill, more so with a huge Nigerian community in South Africa, this will be another explosive clash. This is a match soccer fans must not miss," Dr Danny Jordaan said on SAFA's website.

The two teams met about four months ago and the match ended in a 2-2 draw.

Both teams are preparing for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying series.
