Having already secured a high profile warm-up game against Argentina in Krasnodar, Russia, the Nigeria Football Federation have stepped up preparation for the world cup with sources revealing that the NFF is close to scheduling a friendly against Serbia for the March 2018 window.

Both nations secured qualification for the tournament earlier this month, and ScoreNigeria reports that officials are working behind the scenes to button down the details.

According to African Football, the president of the Serbia-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce, Prince (Dr) Toyese Gold, has revealed that Serbian representatives have reached out to the NFF.

Both nations also played a pre-World Cup friendly in 1998 in Belgrade which was won 3-0 by the hosts (who were then known as Yugoslavia).

The game is famously remembered for Abiodun Baruwa’s howler which led to the goalkeeper being completely ostracized.

Serbia secured qualification by finishing top of Group D in Europe’s preliminaries ahead of Republic of Ireland, Wales, Austria, Georgia and Moldova.
