Uganda Confirm November 20 Friendly Against Nigeria

The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has confirmed an international friendly against Nigeria’s Super Eagles for November 20.

The match between the Eagles and Cranes of Uganda is slated to hold at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, Delta State.

It will come up three days after Nigeria’s November 17 clash with South Africa in the 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifiers.

According to the Ugandan football federation’s website, FUFA Communications Manager, Ahmed Hussein, said the match is part of the international friendlies lined up for Uganda Cranes after engaging Cape Verde in the 2019 Total Nations Cup qualifier at the Namboole Stadium.

“The Uganda Cranes technical team will make use of the FIFA International break that runs from November 12 to 20, by playing a high profile friendly with the former African Champions. Matches between these two soccer giants have always been so close since time immemorial.

“A 30-man contingent will depart on November 18 for the trip to Nigeria. The foreign-based players in the contingent will then connect to their respective clubs after the friendly. Both nations will field national A men’s teams,” Hussein stated.
