The former Kano Pillars technical director has assembled an 18-man squad comprising several youth internationals to face a locally based Super Eagles side in Oyo.The game is expected to climax the official opening of the newly built Akpa Ibom Stadium which will also host Nigeria's 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa.Jabir expects a firey encounter even though the two sides will not be fielding their high-profile players.“We are taking this game very serious because you know when ever Ghana play Nigeria it's always very intense,” Jabir told GHANASoccernet.com“You will see that after all the pleasantries are done the two teams will try to win the game.“The truth is when it comes to Ghana against Nigeria there is nothing like friendly games, we are going for it.”
