Super Eagles To Face Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal In Friendly Game (Updated: 2 months ago)


The Super Eagles of Nigeria will take on Cristiano Ronaldo-led Portugal in an international friendly in September.

This was revealed by Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Secretary General, Muhammad Sanusi.

Though, there is no official statement from the NFF or the Portuguese Football Federation.

According to Sanusi the game is expected to hold in September, as the NFF want to take advantage of the FIFA window following the postponement of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers till March next year.

Also, Sanusi stated that Eagles coach Jose Peseiro is involve in the arrangement of the friendly with Portugal.

Speaking on Brila FM, Sanusi said“We are all aware that qualifiers was fixed for September but because of the change of date of the AFCON qualifiers which has been moved to next year March, therefore the NFF has made it a duty to always use the FIFA window to play quality friendly matches with the aim of keeping the team in good shape.

“That’s why we use the contact and connection of our coach (Jose) Peseiro who is a Portuguese to arrange a quality friendly match with the Portuguese national team.“

Nigeria and Portugal have never clashed at senior level but both countries met three times at the U-20 World Cup with Portugal winning all three meetings (twice in 1989 and 2013).

Portugal will take on Eagles’ rivals Black Stars of Ghana in the group stage at this year’s World Cup in Qatar.

In 2016 Portugal won her first ever senior major title after edging hosts France in the European Championship final.
