The Black Stars will face Nigeria in an international friendly on the 29th of March, 2015 in London.

The announcement was made by the Nigerian Football Federation on Friday and it was revealed the Super Eagles would play against Bolivia at the Akwa Ibom Stadium on the 26th before facing Ghana.

The last time the two teams met was in 2011 in another friendly that ended goalless.

According to the NFF, the upcoming friendly will be used as part of preparations for the 2017 AFCON qualifiers which will start by June.

The Super Eagles failed to qualify for the just-ended 2015 AFCON despite being defending champions from the 2013 edition.

Nigeria have already played a friendly match this year in which they beat Yemen 2-0 in January.
