Super Eagles invited to feature in Four-Nation tourney in Austria

The Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to feature in a four-nation tournament in Austria.

According to a source close to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), the tournament became necessary following the postponement of the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifiers by FIFA.

The Eagles were initially expected to face Lone Star of Liberia and Cape Verde next month for the World Cup qualifiers.

The source revealed that plans are in top gear to have Senegal, Cameroon and yet to be named team to be part of the tournament scheduled to be held in Austria.

The NFF has been shopping for friendly matches for Gernot Rohr-tutored side in their bid to keep the team in top shape for the September qualifiers as most of the European leagues would be on break for months before the qualifiers begin.

Rohr had told the NFF that they must look at the possibility of getting friendly matches to keep the players in top shape as most European leagues will soon be on break.

“We have to organize friendlies now and we already have some African countries in mind,” Rohr stated
