Nigeria is 45th in the latest FIFA rankings and the only tournament-bound team the US will face before departing (they’ll play a closed-door scrimmage against Belgium in São Paulo).Nigeria will also be putting the final touches on things as this friendly is also their final warm-up before Brazil, so that should add to the match’s urgency. Forward Shola Ameobi said he expects the match against the Americans to be “volatile” as both sides search for their best form with the World Cup just more than a week away.Culled mlssoccer
The United States‘ pre-World Cup friendly against Nigeria has been finalized, according to the BBC. The Americans will play the Super Eagles on June 7 at Everbank Field in Jacksonville, Florida, their final friendly before leaving for Brazil.
The U.S. intends to play three friendlies on home soil in late May and early June to prepare for the tournament. Nigeria will be the first African opponent that the U.S. has played since November 17, 2010, when they took on South Africa in Cape Town. In a World Cup year, it will be the last friendly before the U.S. leaves for Brazil. Culled from starsandstripesFC.
