Nigeria: Korean wants failed Super Eagles ‘stars’

The Korean Football Association has requested that the Nigerian national team bring at least half of their World Cup squad for a friendly in Seoul in August.

The ‘Super Eagles’ nickname of the Nigerian National Team, had a disastrous World cup outing losing two of their group matches and drawing the third with the South Korean National team

The South Korean team are set to play the Eagles on August 11 and according to the Nigerian Football Federation, at least 50% of the team that played in the 2-2 Group B draw between the two nations at the World Cup is required.

“South Korea have asked that at least 50 percent of the squad for this friendly be made up of players who were in South Africa,” a top Nigerian official told

“This is the acceptable practise around the world because their request is borne out of the need to make the match a commercially viable project.”
