Reports early today say Ethiopia Football Federation has requested an international friendly with the home-based Super Eagles, as they also look forward to concluding their preparations for CHAN.
Its counterpart, Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has already responded in the affirmative, and according to Brila FM radio in Lagos, Ethiopia are therefore expected to fly in on Friday, 3 January for the test game ahead of the tie scheduled for Saturday at the Abuja National Stadium.
