The international friendly match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Pharaohs of Egypt, scheduled to hold on Tuesday, March 26, will be broadcast live on GOtv. The encounter, billed for the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, will be aired live on SuperSport Select 1 (channel 1) at 6pm.
The encounter between the two teams will serve as a warm-up game for the two African football giants ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), which will be hosted by Egypt in June.
Both teams have met 17 times, with the Super Eagles winning on seven occasions, while the Pharaohs have won five times, the most recent being a 1-0 victory in March 2016, which denied Nigeria a ticket to the 2017 AFCON.
The Super Eagles go into the game on the back of a 3-1 win against Seychelles in their last AFCON 2019 qualifier at the Stephen Keshi Stadium. Coach Gernot Rohr is expected to use the game to test some fringe players, who could put themselves in the contention for slots in the final AFCON squad.
The Egyptians, who landed in Asaba on Sunday, finished their 2019 AFCON qualifying campaign with a 1-1 away to Niger. They arrived without their talismanic skipper, Mohamed Salah, who was left out of the game by Coach Javier Aguirre.
Then later in the day, GOtv subscribers will also watch South American giants, Brazil, in action when they take on Czech Republic. The match will be aired live on SuperSport Select 3 at 8:45pm.
Five-time world champions, Brazil, were surprisingly held 1-1 at home by Panama on Saturday. The Seleção will, however, hope to bounce back against a Czech side, who were battered 0-5 by England in their last Euro 2020 qualifier.
