The Super Eagles of Nigeria and Pharaohs of Egypt will play each other in a friendly encounter on March 26, 2019.

The Egyptian Football Federation confirmed this on their official Twitter handle on Thursday.

“The Egyptian Football Federation (EFA) has received approval from Nigeria for a friendly match between the two countries in Nigeria on March 26 during the international window, which will also see the last national team qualifiers against Niger in Niamey between March 22-24,” it wrote.

However, venue for the high profile game, is yet to be confirmed.

The game will come up three days after Nigeria’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Seychelles.

The Super Eagles booked their place at the 2019 AFCON, following a 1-1 draw against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in November.

The Pharaohs defeated the Super Eagles 1-0 the last time both teams met in a friendly match in March 2016.
