There has been a little tweak to Super Eagles October 2020 plans as African champions Algeria have now replaced Côte d’Ivoire as an opponent for a friendly game.

Nigeria were supposed to face Côte d’Ivoire on Friday, October 9 in a friendly game in Austria but that fixture has now been cancelled due to The Federation Ivoirienne de Football’s inability to send a team to Austria for the game as earlier agreed.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in a statement said the Ivorian FA cited ‘internal problems’ for their inability to be available for the friendly game.

In the place of that friendly game, NFF boss Amaju Pinnick and his Algerian counterpart Kheireddine Zetchi quickly agreed for a friendly game on the same October 9.
