Lagos - The Super Eagles will play Mexico in an
international friendly ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The friendly will be played on March 5 at the Georgia Dome
and AT&T Stadium in Georgia, Atlanta in the United States of America.
The match, which comes nine months after a pulsating,
high-octane clash between both nations at the Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas
that ended 2-2, will kick off at 8:30pm (ET). The Georgia Dome, one of the
largest indoor sporting facilities in the United States, is the primary home of
the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons.
Mexico, like African champions Nigeria, is among the
countries that will participate in the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014.
Nigeria face Argentina, Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina in Group
F while Mexico play in group A against hosts and five-time winners Brazil,
Croatia and Cameroon.
Mexico and Nigeria have met four times with a 1-0-3 record
in favour of Mexico. The two teams last met in May of 2013 as part of Mexico’s U.S.
The African champions are preparing to make a big impact at
the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 and this match is part of the pre- World Cup matches
that Eurodata Sport is organizing for the Super Eagles on their path to Brazil.
