Australian footballers to play against Nigeria in Africa Cup of Nations

ANZ Stadium, Brisbane, March 13, 2019.

Anzac Day is commemorated each year on the first Monday in March.

The match between Australia and Nigeria will take place on Thursday, April 3.

It is the first game between two sides from the continent since 1996 when Australia won the African Cup of Nines.

The match will be played at a new stadium, the Conejo Stadium, which has been redeveloped with new seating, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a state of the art training facility.

This will be Australia’s second international game at the Conesjo Stadium and is scheduled for the first weekend of April.

Australia has played in the African Nations Cup every year since 1996.

There will be no Asian Cup qualifiers in 2019 as a result.

The two-day game will feature two games on Saturday and a double header on Sunday.

The final will take the field on Saturday afternoon with the two teams playing their semi-final on Sunday morning.

In 2019, Australia will play two matches against Nigeria: a friendly against the Nigerian National Team on Saturday evening at the Brisbane Stadium; and a friendly with the Nigerian side at the Cotunjunga Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Nigeria have already qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup.

They beat Ghana 2-1 in the final of the Africa Cup in April.

Nigas captain Oumar Niasse, who scored Australia’s opener in the 2-0 win against Ghana, was also in the squad for the final.

Australian captain Andrew Hoole will also be in attendance.

He was a part of the squad that won the 2014 African Cup, but was absent from the team that played in South Africa in 2014.

The 2018 Africa Cup qualifiers will also see Australia face Ghana and Nigeria.

Nigerian players will be available for selection for the matches, but are expected to be rested in the event of injuries.NICOLAS WALKER/AAPN AAP
