Super Eagles seem set to play fellow 2019 AFCON qualifiers Benin in a prep game in June after a proposed friendly with Ghana was called off.
There had been multiple reports that the Eagles could play the Black Stars but that seems unlikely because Ghana have already arranged a training camp in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the AFCON around the same time.
Sources have now told brila.net that the other option may be to play Benin. In fact, efforts are already said to be made to have both sides play in Nigeria.
If things go as planned, the Eagles could play the game in Asaba in the first week of June before they head out to Egypt for the AFCON.
The Eagles will also battle Senegal in Egypt as part of their build-up for the 2019 AFCON.
