The Black Stars B will play their Nigerian counterparts in an international friendly in the United States of America in October, the Nigeria Football Federation [NFF] President, Amaju Melvin Pinnick has confirmed.

Pinnick in an interview disclosed that the CHAN team will face Ghana in October barring any last-minute hitch.

“This is the launchpad we are providing for you to showcase your talents,” Pinnick told the media.

“This team (Eagles B) is our pride, and we will keep you and monitor you because you are the next big thing in Nigerian football.

“In October, we will be flying the team to Baltimore for friendly games against Ghana possibly, Cameroon and Canada, maybe. We will sort that out in the coming weeks.

“We will tidy up all the documentation. You will be playing at the 73,000 capacity M&T Bank Stadium,” he added.

Nigeria suffered an embarrassing defeat to Mexico, in a friendly they lost 4-0.

The last time Ghana’s team B met Nigeria was in the final’s of the WAFU Cup in 2018, where the Black Stars won the trophy after a 4-1 victory
