Super Eagles To Face Portugal In Friendly Battle In Lisbon


The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and Federação Portuguesa de Futebol, have signed a formal agreement for the Super Eagles of Nigeria and A Seleção of Portugal to clash in a prestige senior team friendly at the Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon on Thursday, November 17, 2022.


The Super Eagles have won the Africa Cup of Nations on three occasions (as well as Olympic men’s football gold, silver and bronze) while Portugal won her first continental trophy (Euro Championship) in France in 2016, defeating host France 1-0 after extra time at the Stade de France. As hosts, A Seleção lost the Euro Championship final to Greece in 2004.


Already billed to play 2019 African champions, Algeria, in Oran on September 27, the encounter with Portugal is another ace by the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF, which has enabled high-end international friendlies for the Super Eagles and other Nigeria National Teams over the past eight years.
