Johannesburg - The proposed international friendly between Nigeria's Super Eagles and their South African counterparts has hit a brick wall.
SuperSport.com reports that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is uncomfortable with the February 29, 2012 date for the tune-up match and will not enter into any agreement for the game.
The February 29 date picked for the friendly falls on the same day that the Super Eagles will face the Amavubi of Rwanda in the first leg, round two of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualification in Kigali.
SuperSport.com's attempt to get the NFF general secretary, Musa Amadu, to comment on the development was turned down.
Amadu instead referred our correspondent to the federation's spokesman, Ademola Olajire, who could not be reached as his mobile telephone rang without response.
"I am not in a position to talk on this. The federation's media officer will do that," said Amadu in a brash tone.
This is the third time a game between the two has been nixed.
