The Nigeria Football Federation is hoping to secure a friendly match against an African side.
According to a statement by the NFF, the Eagles hope to secure the friendly as part of their preparations for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Nigeria is drawn in Group L of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers alongside Lesotho, Sierra Leone and the Benin Republic.
The federation also hailed Eurodata Sport, a FIFA licenced agent, for putting together the friendly against Brazil which is happening on October 13 in Singapore.
“We are happy to have sealed this encounter with Brazil, the five-time champions of the world. It is not every day that you get to play Brazil, and I think it is very good for our young team.
“Having said that, the focus now is on getting an African team for the Super Eagles as a second match for the FIFA window in October, ahead of their 2021 AFCON qualifying matches in November,” NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, said.
The FIFA international friendly calendar is between October 7 and 15.
The Super Eagles picked two 2021 AFCON qualifying dates in November. After hosting the Squirrels of Benin Republic on 14th November, they will fly to Maseru for a Day Two encounter with the Crocodiles of Lesotho on 19th November.
