Nigeria vs Ghana Friendly Rescheduled for October

Nigeria and Ghana have agreed to reschedule Tuesday's cancelled friendly match. The game is now expected to be played on October 11, subject to approval from The FA.

Match agent Jairo Pachon said players and officials from both countries were hugely disappointed at the cancellation of the game, and were willing to give it another go as soon as possible

"We spoke to Nigeria and Ghana, and both countries have agreed that if the FA gives their approval, then the game can be played in October," Pachon said.

"Watford has already agreed that the game can still take place at Vicarage Road."

Tuesday's highly anticipated match up had to be called off on the advise of the Hertfordshire Constabulary, who informed Watford that they could not effectively police the game in the wake of three days of violent looting which started in London, and is rapidly spreading to other parts of England.
