–Glass House clarifies on proposed England/Nigeria friendly
General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, on Thursday made clarification on the already widely publicized international friendly between the Super Eagles and the Three Lions of England, stating clearly that no agreement has been reached on a date for the proposed game.
“The aspect of a proposed friendly between Nigeria and England as discussed by the NFF President (Mr. Amaju Pinnick) and Chairman of The FA, Mr. Greg Dyke, at their meeting in London on Tuesday has been somewhat overblown in the social media.
“It is understandable that any news of a proposed friendly between Nigeria and England would generate global interest, as it has done. Both teams last played any match at senior level about 13 years ago.
“However, we must say at this stage that the proposal is still at the level of discussions and nothing concrete has been agreed as to when the match will hold. We are awaiting feedback from the FA and will report on the outcome accordingly.”
