CAF reschedules Nigeria, Egypt game for March 25

The Confederation of African Football, CAF on Thursday ordered that the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations Day 3 qualifying match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Pharaohs of Egypt take place on Friday, March 25 at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna instead of Saturday, March 26 as was earlier adjusted.

According to a release by Ademola Olajire for the NFF, the decision followed a mail sent to the NFF by the Confederation of African Football on Wednesday that Nigeria should endeavour to make room for “a minimum of two full days of rest between the two matches.”

Although CAF had  given Nigeria the latitude to pick any day between 23rd – 26th March for the Day 3 clash, and handed Egypt the option of picking any day from 26th – 29th for the Day 4 encounter, the continental body appealed to the NFF to pick a new date that would ensure two full days of rest ahead of the second match.
