Nigerians mainly have been waiting for this friendly game between the Super Eagles vs Scotland and this will be a great opportunity to meet the team before they jet off to Brazil. The pre World Cup international friendly which is taking place at Fulham’s Craven Cottage ground today May 28, is allegedly under investigation because it is a desirable match for match fixing.
