Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is working on an ambitious three-match friendly series in London and Belgium, which will involve Cameroon, Ghana and Congo, next month.

The matches will be played between October 5 and 13, africanfootball.com reports.

The website had earlier reported that discussions have reached an advanced stage for the Super Eagles to take on the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon during a FIFA-friendly window next month.

And now the proposal has taken on two more countries, Ghana and Congo, with London and Belgium being proposed as match venues.

There are two FIFA friendly windows left for this year – 5-13 October and 9-17 November.

The NFF has swung into action to make the most of these openings in order to fast track the rebuilding of the Eagles under new coach Sunday Oliseh ahead of a 2017 African Nations Cup qualifying double header against Egypt in March next year.

“We are still working on this plan, but we will give it our best shot because we need to get the new team ready for the decisive AFCON qualifiers against Egypt next year,” a top official told africanFootball.com

The Super Eagles has four points from two matches, two points behind Egypt, in the race for an automatic place for Gabon 2017.
