Nigeria-Burkina friendly cancel over visa hitch

By AFP   |

Nigeria’s friendly against Burkina Faso in London next week has been cancelled because of visa issues affecting travelling players, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said on Saturday.

The NFF said seven Burkinabe players failed to secure British entry visas, forcing Monday’s match at Barnet in north London to be shelved.

The Super Eagles were using the match as part of preparations for their remaining qualifiers for the World Cup 2018 and Africa Cup of Nations 2019.
