Nigeria’s friendly against Algeria not recognised by FIFA – official
The Super Eagles will face Algeria B side on Friday in a test game and the outcome is insignificant to FIFA’s ratification
As part of preparation for September 27th game against former AFCON champions, Algeria, the Super Eagles will face the home-based Desert Foxes on Friday.
The Media Officer of the Super Eagles, Babafemi Raji has revealed that the game is merely a test game that has been organised to keep the team in shape.
It is also expected to help the Algerian B team prepare for the CHAN tournament the country is hosting next year.

“This game will only be a test game and it won’t be recognised by FIFA,” Raji revealed.
Raji however added that the game in Oran would be used by FIFA as it falls as one of its recognised matches.
The game against Algeria’s B side had been preset to be for the CHAN Eagles but their failure to qualify for the 2023 CHAN tournament forced the NFF to reschedule the game for the Super Eagles.
The Nigerians have been camped in Constantine, Algeria since Monday and had a full collection of players in camp until Wilfred Ndidi sustained an injury which will keep him out of the games against the Algerian sides.
