The Super Eagles of Nigeria will play Bolivia in an international friendly match at the Akwa Ibom stadium, Uyo on Thursday March 26, 2015.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and its FIFA match agent, Jairo Pachon confirmed the clash between both sides.

“We have had to work at a pace to seal agreement for this match, after the Brazilian Football Federation opted out at the last hour,” NFF president, Amaju Pinnick, said.

“However, we believe that the Bolivia team will give the Super Eagles a good match, as we continue to work on a second match for the Eagles for either 29th March.”

The game will be the first for the Super Eagles A team this year as they prepare for the qualifying games of 2017 Orange Africa Cup of Nations and 2018 FIFA World Cup later in the year.

“The NFF is committed to ensuring that the Super Eagles are occupied on every FIFA window, with quality games,” Pinnick said.

Bolivia will use the game as part of their preparation for the 44th edition of Copa America which will be held in Chile in June 11 to July 4, 2015. They are in Group A with host Chile, Mexico, and Ecuador.
