Initially the plan was to play Brazil on that same day, however, the Selecao will be playing Chile at the Emirates Stadium that same day.

The Super Eagles will first play a friendly game against Bolivia at the Nest of Champions in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State on March 26th.

Then after the game against the South Americans, the Nigerian contingent will depart for for us to win our first game,” he said.

“We took our chances and defended very well.

“Now we have to see how we can grow from strength to strength.”

Guinea skipper Mohamed Mory Korouma promised his team will be better against Nigeria on Wednesday.

“We are more talented than what we showed today (against Zambia),” he said.

“In the next games, we will show our talents.”

Guinea were without three of their top stars on account of injury.
