Super Eagles Jet Out For Costa Rica Friendly

An 18-man Super Eagles squad will play Nigeria’s upcoming international friendly match against Los Ticos of Costa Rica next week.

The team led by Super Eagles assistant coach Salisu Yusuf will play Costa Rica on Thursday, November 10, in San Jose.

Costa Rica is playing the match to prepare for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, but Nigeria failed to qualify for the competition.

Foreign-based Super Eagles are not part of the friendly due to club commitments. The home-based Eagles who will travel for the match have been in camp in Ibadan since last month.
