African Champions, the Super Eagles of Nigeria will play Scotland in an international friendly on May 28 at Craven Cottage, Fulham, England.

Nigeria defeated Scotland 2-1 in Aberdeen, the last time the two nations met, as the Eagles prepared for the Korea/Japan World Cup in 2002.

Stephen Keshi’s team will face the European minnows six days before they take on Greece in another warm-up match, which will be played in Philadelphia, USA.

NFF match agent Jairo Pachon told BBC Sport: “Playing Scotland at the end of several European leagues should help the players get to London easily.

“This game provides big opportunities for the coaches, players and fans of the Super Eagles.

“It’s also an important opportunity for the coach to see some players before their big camp in the United States.

“Significantly, it will enable the Nigerian community in the UK and across Europe to see the team before the World Cup in Brazil.”
