Reports say the activities of terror group, Boko Haram, in northern Nigeria may deny the Super Eagles of a high-profile friendly against Brazil.
The Eagles were due to play the former world champions in Nigeria during a FIFA window in September but the recent bombings in some northern states forced the Brazilians to reconsider their proposed visit to Nigeria and sought another African side for the friendly.
The Brazilian FA has settled for the Bafana Bafana of South Africa, but the match will be played either in Brazil or the USA on September 7.
The Nigeria Football Federation however said the Nigeria versus Brazil friendly would still hold as planned.
