Nigeria vs Central African Republic: CAF gives NFF condition to play game in Lagos

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has permitted the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to admit only 5,000 fans, for the Super Eagles’ World Cup qualifier against the Central African Republic on Thursday.

The game will be played at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos.

The kick-off has been scheduled for 5pm West African time.

Nigeria has already played one of their qualifiers at the venue, a 2-0 win over Liberia, with Kelechi Iheanacho scoring both goals.

Gernot Rohr will be banking on home advantage to secure three points against CAR, as the three-time African champions continue their quest to play in the World Cup in Qatar.

The Super Eagles players and coaches will then fly into Douala on Saturday morning, for the reverse fixture that will kick off at 2pm Cameroon time on Sunday, and fly to Abuja immediately after the game.
