In a media press briefing at the SAFA headquarters, President Danny Jordaan confirmed that the Super Eagles will once again visit South African shores to take on Bafana Bafana in a match billed as a means to strengthen relations between the two nations.
“We are happy that Nigeria have accepted the invitation to play our national squad. These are two key nations in African football and can lead the way for the improvement of football on this continent,” stated Jordaan.
SAFA also confirmed that the venue will be the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.
