The Nigerian football governing board affirms Super Eagles Vs Mexico international friendly July 3rd in Los Angeles, USA.

The Director of Media of the NFF, Demola Olajiire, says the game will come after the friendly game against Cameroon which will take place in Austria on June 4th.

This was an affirmation by the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) that the friendly international against Nigeria will be part of its preparations for the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup.

It will be the fifth meeting between both sides since 1995. On that occasion at the Confederations Cup in Riyadh Saudi Arabia, Daniel Amokachi’s 33rd minute goal cancelled out Ramon Ramirez’s opener 12 minutes earlier for a 1-1 draw before the Mexicans went on to win on penalties.

They met again 12 years later in 2007 in Juarez, Mexico and played out a 2-2 draw, Juan Carlos Cacho and Obafemi Martins each scoring a brace. At the next meeting in 2013, it was another 2-2 draw with Brown Ideye’s goal and a Gerardo Torrado own goal securing a share of the spoils.

Their last meeting was in 2014 as the Super Eagles prepared for the World Cup in Brazil with scores ending 0-0.
