Nigeria Reject Botswana Friendly Match

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have rejected a chance to play a friendly against Botswana to celebrate that country’s 50thindependence anniversary.

A top official said the NFF will not be sending a team for the friendly slated for around September 30.

“The proposed friendly is off,” he said without giving any further explanation.

This decision may not be unconnected with the poor financial position of the NFF.

Both countries have clashed once, in December 2011, in a friendly played in Benin City and it ended in a goalless draw.
