Super Eagles Franco-German coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that he wants his team to play at least three friendly-matches just before the 2019 AFCON.
Nigeria have qualified for the African showpiece football event with a game to spare and so their final qualifier at home against Seychelles will be a dead-rubber.
“Besides the match against Seychelles in March, we hope to play three more friendlies including one in March and some at the end of May, Rohr stated.
As per ScoreNigeria, Rohr has already picked Uyo as the training base for the AFCON, saying the good pitch at the Stadium was a major attraction.
The Super Eagles have won the AFCON thrice, but they are only back in the tournament proper in four years after they failed to qualify for the last two editions in 2015 and 2017.
