By Adeboye Amosu:

The International friendly match between Nigeria and Luxembourg has been brought forward by 24 hours, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

The encounter earlier scheduled for June 1 2016, will now hold on May 31 at the Josy Barthel Stadium in Luxembourg City.

Completesportsnigeria.com learnt that the match had to be moved forward by a day as a result of the Tour de France cycling competition which Luxembourg will be participating in.

The Super Eagles are expected to play a tuneup game against fellow West Africans, Mali, on May  27 in Rouen, France.

Meanwhile some member of the technical crew and administrative officials of the team have now  been issued Schengen visas,  enabling them to enter the two countries for the two matches.

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF,  has also submitted fresh applications for those who were earlier  denied visas.

The Super Eagles will use both friendly matches to prepare for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers to be played later in the year.
