AFCON Qualifier: Nigeria To Play Tanzania In Uyo


/ by Augustine Akhilomen
The Nigeria Football Federation has confirmed Akwa Ibom International Stadium in Uyo as the venue for Super Eagles of Nigeria clash against the Taifa Stars of Tanzania in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier schedule for September 3.
Prior before this announcement, the NFF had initially opted for Port Harcourt but moved for a change of venue for Uyo, which is popularly known as the Nest of Champions that hosted Nigeria's 2-2 draw with South Africa in the 2015 AFCON qualifier in November.

The team is expected to resume camping on Sunday, August 28 with the arrival of the foreign and local players and will be drilled by Super Eagles coach,Genort Rohr.

For the record, the match is inconsequential since Egypt have booked the sole ticket for the group but Nigeria will be playing for pride against Tanzania.
