Super Eagles will hope to extend their dominance over their West African opponents, Hawks of Togo, in an international friendly in Paris, France.

Eagles manager Gernot Rohr is using Thursday’s game just like last Friday’s session against Corsica Island in Ajaccio as preparation for next weekend’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa in Uyo.

The match against the Hawks will be played at the Stade Municipal de Saint Leu La Foret in Paris at 7pm (6pm Nigeria time).
Kelechi Iheanacho, who scored from the spot to level scores at 1-1 against Corsica on Friday, is one of 20 players in the Eagles’ Hyatt Regency Hotel camp in the French capital ahead of Thursday’s game.

Goalkeepers Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Dele Alampasu, defenders Elderson Echiejile, William Ekong, Chidozie Awaziem, Tyronne Ebuehi and Abdullahi Shehu, midfielders Wilfred Ndidi, Mikel Agu, Oghenekaro Etebo, Alhassan Ibrahim and Uche Agbo and strikers Ahmed Musa, Stephen Odey, Victor Osimhen, Henry Onyekuru, Alex Iwobi, Olanrewaju Kayode and Sikiru Olatubosun are the others.

Thursday’s match will be the 17th clash between the two West African countries at senior level, with Nigeria having won nine of the previous 16 clashes. Togo won three while four matches were drawn.

The first match between the countries at senior level took place on October 6, 1956.
