Super Eagles to play World Cup-bound Costa Rica Nov 10

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed that the Super Eagles will play Costa Rica in an exhibition match on November 10.

The federation announced the friendly game in a post on the team’s Twitter page on Thursday.

The match will take place at the National Stadium of Costa Rica in San Jose, the country’s capital, with the kick-off time at 3am Nigerian time.

The match will serve as preparation ahead of the Qatar 2022 World Cup for Costa Rica. They are in Group E alongside Spain, Japan and Germany.

The Eagles, who missed out on the Mundial, will be using the match to prepare ahead of the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers billed to resume in March next year.

The game will be the first time Nigeria and Los Ticos will be facing each other at the men’s senior national team level.

The match will take place seven days before the Eagles travel to Lisbon to play Portugal on November 17.

It would be recalled that Nigeria recorded their third loss under Jose Peseiro when they were beaten 2-1 by Algeria in a friendly match last month.
