Nigeria league players will take on AFCON-bound Egypt on January 9 in Dubai, officials have confirmed.
Egypt plan to use this game to prepare for the AFCON in Gabon.
Interestingly, Egypt eliminated Nigeria from the AFCON after a double header in March.
This warm-up game will also afford Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr to work more closely with players who feature in the domestic league.
