The President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick has hinted at a possible international friendly between the Super Eagles B and Ghana.

Pinnick revealed negotiations are ongoing between the NFF, Ghana, Cameroon, and Canada to see the Super Eagles B take advantage of the Fifa international break in October.

Specifications were not made whether it is going to be the team As of these nations or it’s going to be like-for-like friendlies.

He added that an agreement is in place to have the games played at the 73,000 capacity M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, the United States.

“This is the launchpad we are providing for you to showcase your talents,” Pinnick told Nigerian pressmen.

“This team (Eagles B) is our pride, and we will keep you and monitor you because you are the next big thing in Nigerian football.

“In October, we will be flying the team to Baltimore for friendly games against Ghana possibly, Cameroon and Canada, maybe. We will sort that out in the coming weeks.

“We will tidy up all the documentation. You will be playing at the 73,000 capacity M&T Bank Stadium.”

The Super Eagles B suffered a 4-0 defeat to Mexico in an international friendly match at the Los Angeles Coliseum earlier on Sunday.
