The Super Eagles of Nigeria will be out on Friday against the Desert Foxes of Algeria in FIFA World Cup qualifying game billed for Constantine.
The match will be played at 8:45 pm in the main bowl of the Stade Mohamed Hamlaoui.
It is the last group game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The Super Eagles have already qualified for the tournament to be staged in various Russian cities next year and victory for them against Rabah Madjer’s men would see them complete the qualifying series without defeat.
Nigeria’s Franco-German coach, Gernot Rohr, will go into this tie without a number of key players and will hope test some of his new invitees ahead of next summer’s World Cup.
Nigerians will watch the game live on television on SS7, SS9; as well as online stream via BT Sport app.
