The Chairman of the Nigeria Footbal Federation NFF technical committee, Mr. Chris Green has said that, Nigeria is planning a World Cup warm-up against Portugal.

This is in addition to next month’s friendly against Mexico as a warm-up game for Brazil 2014 organized for the African champions.

However, Green said it remains at the level of proposal, adding that the match would be played if Portugal accept the arrangement.

“We are considering playing a friendly with Portugal, they play like Argentina and Bosnia-Hezegovina. But for the friendly to come to life, Portugal have to accept and be interested,” Green said on Brila FM.

Nigeria have also been working on another test game against Croatia.

Nigeria are drawn against Argentina, Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina, while Portugal are pitched against Ghana, Germany and United States of America.
