Nigeria’s international friendly game against Senegal billed for the Ismailia Stadium on Sunday will be played behind closed doors.
This is because both coaches of Nigeria and Senegal have unanimously agreed on this as they hope to use the practice game to run through some last-minute tactical experiments on their respective teams.
The media officer of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye, said the decision has been backed by the Confederation of African Football.
The three-time champions will play in Group B at the Nations Cup alongside Guinea, Madagascar and Burundi.
Nigeria’s opening match at the tournament will be against Burundi on June 22 at the Alexandria Stadium.
