The Nigeria Football Federation has stated that
the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium,
Uyo will host the Russia 2018 World Cup
qualifier between the Super Eagles of Nigeria
and the Desert Foxes of Algeria.

Reports at the weekend had stated that the
Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt
will host the match.
The Rivers State government, it was reported,
were said to have accepted request from the
NFF to host the match billed for November the
7th.

Uyo hosted Nigeria’s last home fixture against
Tanzania, a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations
qualifier earlier this month.
