We Look Ahead To Craven Cottage, Friendly Versus Nigeria
April 26 2009
The 29th of May will see the Republic Of Ireland take on Nigeria in what is only the third time the two nations have played each other. Held at Fulham F.C,'s home ground of Craven Cottage in London the game promises to be an exciting one with both teams having some very impressive attacking players at their usage.
The Nigerians will be quite the able opponent, with an armory of well known players at their disposal in the shapes of Obafemi Martins of Newcastle United, Nwanku Kanu of Portsmouth, Dickson Etuhu of Fulham, John Obi Mikel of Chelsea and Victor Anichebe of Everton to name just a few.
A lot of the starting line up for Nigeria will be familiar to us, and we know what a lot of them are about, how they play. Nigeria will come playing exciting, attacking football but with a good defensive base behind them. As Ireland like to play free flowing attacking football also, it should make for a very interesting affair indeed.
