Two friendlies proposed for the Super Eagles next month in Europe have been called off as the clubs of the national team call-ups have refused to release them over concerns over Coronavirus, according to coach Gernot Rohr.
Nigeria had planned to use the FIFA-friendly window of September for the Super Eagles to play two matches in Europe.
Rohr has now been quoted by Sporting Life as saying the European clubs will not release players for the proposed friendlies because of the still raging Coronavirus Pandemic across the world.
Top NFF officials had first announced the friendlies will be staged in Portugal, before they later said they will be played in Austria.
It is looking more likely that 2022 World Cup qualifiers slated for October for the African zone will also be called off as the pandemic has still not been contained.
The Eagles were last in action in November 2019 when they beat Lesotho 4-2 in a 2021 AFCON qualifier.
