Are there any football enthusiasts here? I certainly hope so because I would like us to try something different.
Let’s predict who would win the match between Arsenal Football Club of England and the Super Eagles of Nigeria!
On Sunday, August 5th 2012, the two teams would take each other on in an exciting football match in Abuja, Nigeria.
Arsenal, which came third in the English premiership last season, will be in Nigeria as part of their pre-season preparation. The match will be the first time Arsenal will play against the Super Eagles who are currently ranked 60th in the FIFA rankings.
DanJan Sports, the promoters of the game, say they have an agreement with the Nigeria Football Federation that the Nigerian team would field a strong side for the match.
“The NFF have agreed that the country will present a strong side, as Coach Stephen Keshi continues his development process,” said David Omigie, who spoke for Dan Jan Sports.
“The Arsenal manager (Arsene Wenger) will also use this game to showcase his full squad for the 2012/2013 football season,” Mr. Omigie said.
Arsenal traditionally hosts an annual pre-season tournament at the Emirates Stadium, called the Emirates cup, but they opted to postpone the event this year because of the 2012 London Olympics.
The London club would visit Malaysia and China as part of their pre-season preparation in July before coming to Nigeria. Tickets for the match will go on sale from July 4.
So, what do you think? Arsenal FC vs Super Eagles, who stands a better chance of winning the match? Do you wish to predict the scores?
Again I ask, are there any football enthusiasts here? Maybe someone could give us a pre-match analysis of what to expect.
Let’s know what you think.
