Nigeria will meet Ukraine in an international friendly next month as they build towards the start of the Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup qualifiers.
The match was confirmed by Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnock and will take place in Dnipro on September 10.
It will be a first ever meeting between the sides and the first game for the Super Eagles since they finished third at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Coach Gernot Rohr is expected to call on his array of European-based stars for the contest, though it will be interesting to see what squad changes he makes with a new cycle of qualifiers about to start.
Nigeria have a fairly gentle path to the next Nations Cup finals, needing to finish in the top two in a pool that also includes Benin, Sierra Leone and Lesotho.
They start at home to Benin on the weekend of November 15-17.
