Nigeria will play a tune up game against Algeria’s B team on Saturday, the NFF have confirmed.
According to an official NFF statement, the “training game” was approved by head Coach Jose Peseiro.

“Head Coach José Santos Peseiro has approved that the three-time African champions have a training game against Algeria’s ‘B’ squad on Saturday in order to see a number of new and returning players in action, ahead of the official game against the Fennecs (Algeria’s ‘A’ team) in Oran on Tuesday evening.”
Meanwhile, Peseiro also welcomed the latest arrival to the team’s camp in Constantine, Francis Uzoho and Ebube Duru to bring the total number of players for the 27th September friendly to 24.
