The Super Eagles of Nigeria will battle against the Black Stars of Ghana, as president Goodluck Jonathan opens Uyo Stadium November 7
Ghana will face African champions, Nigeria in an international friendly on 7 November.
The game, which will be played in Uyo, will be used to officially open the newly built Akwa Ibom International Stadium.
The 30,000 seating capacity stadium which looks very much like the Soccer City in Johannesburg, South Africa is second to none in the West African sub-region.
Nigeria last met Ghana in a competitive game in the semifinals of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) hosted by South Africa in January and the Black Stars ran away with a 4-1 victory after penalty shoot out. That game ended goalless in duration time.
However, unlike the clash in Bloemfontein, which was for home-based players only, the November 7 clash between the rivals will feature the full compliment of both sides national teams in an event, which will be laced with cultural dance, music and total entertainment.
Both countries will be using the game as part of preparations for their 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Uganda and Congo respectively.
The Black Stars currently sit in first place of 2015 Afcon qualifying above Togo, Uganda and Guinea.
