The Nigeria Football Federation has stated that the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo will host the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifying fixture between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Desert Foxes of Algeria as against the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt.

The spokesman of the NFF,Ademola Olajire said on Sunday at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta on Sunday to watch the NPFL game between Ikorodu United and Rangers International that the game against Algeria will be played in Uyo and not Port Harcourt.

“Our game against the Algerians will take place at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo,” Olajire.

“I don’t know where the Port Harcourt story came from, but it’s important for media men to confirm story like this from the NFF before releasing it out for public consumption.

“The NFF didn’t write any letter to the River State government as we have already concluded on the choice of Uyo for the game.”
