Sharing is caring!

The much-anticipated October 13 international friendly match between Nigeria and Brazil is threatened.

The match billed for the iconic National Stadium in Singapore may be called off at the last minutes unless the London-based organisers, Pitch International, is able to sort out travelling arrangement.

NationSport learnt that the players and Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) delegation including the technical and backroom staff were yet to be issued necessary travelling documents including visas.

The organisers of the match which is Pitch International actually messed up the invitation letter particularly for those expected to come from Nigeria and that was why the Nigerian delegation was unable to travel on Tuesday,” an official who pleaded anonymity informed NationSport.

“Due to this fact, the Nigerian delegation did not receive their visas which they should have received on Monday or latest Tuesday because they were expected to depart for Singapore by 6:00pm on Tuesday.

“Now, we have difficulties because without visas nobody would be able to travel.
