Keshi: Eagles ready for Scotland challenge

05 March 2014, 15:08Israel Ojoko

Atlanta - After days of speculations about the friendly between Nigeria and Scotland, Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has given his blessings to the encounter scheduled for May 28.

The Nigeria Football Federation had already given provisional approval for the game while awaiting final words from match organisers and the coach of both sides.

Keshi declared his readiness for the game and thanked the NFF for always being forward looking as it concerns Nigeria's preparations for Mundial 2014 in Brazil.

"We are delighted to be playing the Scottish team in London as part of our pre World Cup preparations and we know it would be a real test in front of a passionate crowd. We hope that many London based Nigerians will come out en masse to give the Eagles a rousing send forth ahead of Brazil 2014".

NFF match agent, Jairo Pachon, said all loose ends in the proposed game have now be tied up adding that he foresees a very entertaining game in London for both countries. The game is expected to be one of the Super Eagles last warm up games before the World Cup kicks off on June 12 in Brazil.
