The 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier between Nigeria and Algeria will kick off at 5pm local time on Saturday, November 12, 2016.
The matchday 2 encounter of the qualifiers between both teams will be played at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, Nigeria.
The Nigeria Football Federation said it has won a protest it quietly launched following the release of the official match appointment, which set the kick –off time at 5.30pm.
“The information we sent to FIFA was that we wanted the match to start at 5pm; we were surprised when the match appointment was released and the kick –off time was set at 5.30pm. The NFF immediately protested and eventually, on Wednesday morning, FIFA agreed that the match will start at 5pm,” NFF’s Director of Competitions, Bola Oyeyode, said.
