In’t Friendlies: Super Eagles to meet Saudi Arabia in Portugal
Just one month has passed since the three-time African champions defeated Sao Tome and Principe 6-0 in their 2023 AFCON final-day qualifying match in Uyo. They will now play the Crocodiles of Lesotho at home in hopes of securing a spot in the 2026 FIFA World Cup finals.
The Eagles will play their second game of the qualifying series on the road against the Warriors of Zimbabwe in November, all under the same FIFA timeframe.
The most memorable meeting between the two nations is still the FIFA U20 World Cup (formerly FIFA World Youth Championship) opening match in 1989, when Nigeria defeated the host country 2-1 in Riyadh thanks to goals from Christopher Ohenhen and Mutiu Adepoju in the second half.
