Media reports in Nigeria indicate that tickets for Super Eagle’s international friendly against Poland in Wrocław have been sold out.
Gernot Rohr will lead his men against the White and Reds at the Municipal Stadium on Friday evening, with Ticketbits announcing that a full house can be expected.
“The 42,000 tickets for this game have been sold out, the company responsible for this has announced,” top Polish journalist Piotr Kozminski was quoted by various Nigeria portals.
“There is high expectation around the team leading to the World Cup in Russia and it will be a major disappointment if they do not go past a first round group that also has Colombia, Senegal and Japan.
“The Polish FA boss, Zbigniew Boniek, a famous player in his playing days, said he expects Poland not to lose their opening game against Senegal and for Colombia and Poland go through.”
Nigeria are drawn in Group D in the World Cup alongside Croatia, South American powerhouse Argentina and tournament’s dark horses Iceland.
