FIFA World Champions France Opened for a Friendly with Super Eagles

Super Eagles of Nigeria could have a shot at another top profile friendly encounter as FIFA World Champions France has been said to be available.

The Les Bleus who are by far currently the most feared National team in the world are finding it hard to secure international exhibitions with series of European countries as Euro 2020 approaches.

According to top Football source L'Équipe, Fédération Française de Football are struggling to put schedule of friendly matches together for the two-time European Champions before the tournament scheduled for 12 cities across Europe between June 12 and July 12 of 2020.
Multiple participating teams think it would have a negative impact on the morale of their players before the commencement of the tournament proper with potential defeat and total massacre a possibility.

The Nigeria Football Federation against all odds were able to secure grade A friendlies in September and October against Ukraine and the Selecão of Brazil respectively and this appears like another opportunity for an encounter with another world soccer giants.

France were runners-up in 2016 on home soil where they were conquered narrowly by Portugal and as World Champions, the Coach Didier Deschamps tutored side will love to take it a step further taking the European crown.

Nigeria lost to France by 2-0 the last time both sides met on the global stage precisely the second round of the FIFA World Cup that took place in Brazil in 2014.
