The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed that the Super Eagles will play Ecuador in an exhibition match on June 2.

The federation announced the friendly game in a post on its official website on Friday.

The match will take place at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, US, with the kick-off time yet to be announced.

The game will hold just three days after the Eagles play Mexico in another exhibition match in Texas on May 28.


“The Nigeria Football Federation and the Federación Ecuatoriana de Fútbol on Friday announced that the ‘A’ National Teams of both countries will play a friendly match in New Jersey, United States of America on Thursday, 2nd June 2022. Both teams will clash at the 25,000 –capacity Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey – home to Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls,” the statement reads.

“The stadium was opened in March 2010. The match comes only five days after three-time African champions Nigeria would have squared up to the El Tri of Mexico, one of the strongest teams in the CONCACAF region, in another prestigious international friendly match at the AT & T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Ecuador, currently ranked 46 in the world by the world football –governing body reached the Round of 16 at the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals in Germany (their second appearance at football’s high table, following their debut in the Far East in 2002). Nigeria has participated in the FIFA World Cup finals on six occasions, reaching the Round of 16 in 1994, 1998 and 2014.”

The match will serve as preparation ahead of the Qatar 2022 World Cup for La Tricolor.


The Super Eagles are in Group A alongside Senegal, Qatar and the Netherlands.
