by on April 21, 2016

The Super Eagles will take on the Eagles of Mali and the National Team of Luxembourg in two international friendly matches in Europe in the next FIFA window.

The friendly matches, it was learnt, were to keep the Super Eagles busy ahead of the World Cup qualifiers, after failing to qualify for the 2017 Africa Nations Cup in Gabon.

The three –time African champions take on Mali, ranked four places above them at 63, at the Stade Robert Diochon in Rouen, France on Friday, 27th May 2016.

Mali finished as runner-up at the Africa Cup of Nations in 1972, and took bronze medals at the finals in 2012 and 2013.

The Eagles of Mali have already qualified for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations finals, having garnered 10 points from their first four matches of the qualification series, in a Group C that also has Equatorial Guinea, Benin Republic and South Sudan.

The Super Eagles would then play the national team of Luxembourg in Luxembourg on Wednesday, 1st June 2016, at a venue to be finalized in a few days.
