The Egypt FA it was gathered are not willing to bear all the expenses for the game as was demanded by Nigeria and have even gone ahead to fix another game with Tunisia about the same time

The friendly between Egypt and Nigeria was billed to be played on January 9 in Dubai to prepare the Pharaohs for the AFCON in Gabon. It has now been revealed that the Egypt vs Nigeria clash may have fallen through because the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are demanding their Egyptian counterparts bear their entire expenses and also because the Super Eagles will not be at full strength for this match.
