Nigeria books Mexico friendly

10 January 2014, 12:06Israel Ojoko

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. tour.

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.
