The Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Barrister Solomon Dalung has revealed that the National Stadium, Abuja remains the first choice for the international friendly game between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and DR. Congo slated for May 28, 2018.
The international friendly game would give Nigerians the opportunity to watch their darling team play on the home ground before going to Russia for the 2018 World Cup finals.
Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday, Dalung said: “As you can see, work is going on in the National Stadium and we hope it will be completed before the Super Eagles international friendly match against DR Congo on May 28, 2018.
“Abuja remains our first choice but if we are unable to complete fixing of the Stadium before the game, then our Plan B which is Port Harcourt will be the venue for the international friendly game.”
