The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match between the Super Eagles and the Seychelles national team, known as Pirates, will take place on September 8.

The Seychelles Football Federation (SFF) confirmed the date on Tuesday.

Demola Olajire, head of media and communication of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), said the SFF sent a mail to NFF on the development.

“Georges Bibi, the chief executive officer/general secretary of the Seychelles Football Federation, in a mail to NFF’s director of competitions, Ayobola Oyeyode, confirmed the date for the match.

“In the mail it was also disclosed that the match will be played at the Stade Linite on the Mahe Island (home to the capital city, Victoria), starting from 4.30 pm Seychelles time (1.30 pm Nigeria time),” he said.

The match is crucial to both the Super Eagles and the Pirates as both had lost their opening games in the series.

The Super Eagles lost 0-2 to South Africa in Uyo, while the Pirates were beaten 5-1 by Libya’s Mediterranean Knights at the Stade Chedly Zouiten in Tunisia’s capital.

Libya’s Knights currently top Group E, followed by South Africa’s Bafana Bafana, with the Eagles in third place and Pirates is at the bottom of the table.
