Nigeria to Face Saudi Arabia in Friendly Match on October 13
Nigeria’s Super Eagles will play Saudi Arabia on Friday, October 13, 2023, in a friendly match that will take place in Portugal.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) announced this information in a statement released on Wednesday. The Estadio Municipal de Portimo, located in the Algarve and the home ground of Portimonense S.C., with a seating capacity of nearly 10,000, will serve as the venue for this friendly match. This friendly match against Saudi Arabia is scheduled just a month prior to the Super Eagles hosting Lesotho in a 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Uyo.
During the same FIFA window in November, the Eagles are set to participate in their second 2026 World Cup qualifier match, which will be an away game against Zimbabwe. This upcoming encounter marks the second meeting between the Super Eagles and Saudi Arabia at the senior level. Their initial clash took place in 2010 as a friendly game, which ended in a goalless 0-0 draw.
In their final 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Uyo, the Super Eagles secured a resounding 6-0 victory over Sao Tome and Principe on Sunday. Victor Osimhen delivered a spectacular hat-trick, with Ademola Lookman, Taiwo Awoniyi, and Samuel Chukwueze each adding a goal to the impressive tally.
Notably, Victor Boniface made a remarkable debut for the Super Eagles, contributing an assist as he set up Chukwueze for the team’s sixth goal.
