Nigeria vs Senegal pre-AFCON friendly to be played behind closed door

The pre-Africa Cup of Nations friendly match between Nigeria and Senegal will be played behind closed door in Egypt.

It was confirmed on Thursday that both Nigeria and Senegal camps agreed the June 16 duel will be played behind closed door.

The Super Eagles have been training twice a day since arriving in Ismailia on Monday, and are looking forward to Sunday’s final pre-AFCON friendly against Senegal’s Teranga Lions in Ismailia.

Coach Gernot Rohr has already dropped two players – Kelechi Iheanacho and Semi Ajayi – from the Super Eagles 2019 AFCON squad, reducing the number to 23.

Nigeria opened their 2019 AFCON campaign against Burundi before taking on Guinea and Madagascar.
