Nigeria’s Super Eagles are now set to take on fellow 2019 AFCON qualifiers Benin Republic in a warm-up game in June, after a proposed friendly with Ghana was called-off.

It was reported that a proposed friendly match with the Black Stars was not going to hold because Ghana have already arranged a training camp in the United Arab Emirates, UAE for the AFCON around the same time.

Officials informed that efforts are now geared for the Eagles to face Benin Republic in Asaba in the first week of June, before they head-out to Egypt for the AFCON.

The Eagles will also battle Senegal in Egypt, as part of their build-up for the 2019 AFCON.
