Nigeria national football team will battle the likes of Cameroon and Congo in international friendlies next month, according to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The Super Eagles will face either Djibouti or Swaziland in the 2018 World Cup qualifying play-off in November and it has now been revealed they will play two friendly matches ahead of the competitive action.
The NFF president Amaju Pinnick has confirmed that Nigeria will face Congo on October 8 in Antwerp and then Cameroon on October 11 in Brussels.
There is a chance that the Super Eagles will play another friendly match against North African opponents before they take on Egypt in a crucial 2017 AFCON qualifier in March 2015.
This game should take place in November and Tunisia and Algeria are being mentioned as possible opponents.
Nigeria trail Egypt two points in the 2017 AFCON qualifying and the double header in March is likely to decide which team seals automatic qualifying berth.
