New Jersey to host Nigeria Vs Ecuador Friendly

The Communications department of the Nigerian Football Federation has confirmed that Nigeria’s Super Eagles will take on Ecuador in an international friendly match on Thursday 2nd June 2022 in New Jersey.

A statement by the Nigeria Football Federation reveals an agreement has been reached with Federación Ecuatoriana de Fútbol on Friday that the ‘A’ National Teams of both countries will play a friendly match in New Jersey, United States of America on Thursday, 2nd June 2022.

Both teams will clash at the 25,000 –capacity Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey – home to Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls. The stadium was opened in March 2010.

The match comes only five days after three –time African champions Nigeria would have squared up to the El Tri of Mexico, one of the strongest teams in the CONCACAF region, in another prestigious international friendly match at the AT & T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
