The Super Eagles of Nigeria tested negative for the coronavirus.
Recall that FrujuSports had reported that the entire Nigerian team and staff had undergone a coronavirus test on Monday as part of preparation for Tuesday’s friendly clash against Tunisia scheduled to hold at Jacques Lemans Arena, Austria.
“Ahead of tonight’s friendly game against Tunisia, all @NGSuperEagles players have tested negative to COVID19. #SoarSuperEagles #Team9jaStrong,” reads a tweet on the NFF’s official Twitter handle.
Eagles assistant captain William Troost-Ekong and Samuel Kalu will not be available for the game.
Nigeria had defeated Tunisia 1-0 in their last encounter with the North Africans which was the third-place match at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The three-time African champions are looking to bounce back from their recent 1-0 defeat by Algeria in last Friday’s friendly.
Meanwhile, the time for Tunisia clash is 7:30pm Nigerian time.
