The Nigerian  Football Federation has made contact with FIFA in a bid to get the go-ahead for their planned friendly against South Africa in the upcoming international break.

The Super Eagles already have two other friendlies planned, but are aiming to squeeze in a third match despite FIFA regulations permitting countries to play only two games during the break.

World Football’s governing body say the extra fixture would give Nigeria an unfair advantage in the next edition of the FIFA rankings.

However, the NFF hope to receive special dispensation after revealing they are planning to call-up only local-based players for the friendly encounter in Lagos.

“We still hope to convince FIFA to allow us play the match in Lagos,” a NFF official told African Football.
