Brazil 2014 Qualifier: FIFA orders all Group F teams to play same day

World football-governing body, FIFA has ruled that all matches in the
Super Eagles’ 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group F must be played on
the dates of June 5 and June 12.

Concerned that Flames of Malawi, on same five points as the Super
Eagles would have undue advantage should they play three days after
Nigeria, the Nigeria Football Federation wrote to FIFA last week to
consider the options of all teams playing on the same day or on the
weekends as originally scheduled.

FIFA has now confirmed that while Nigeria take on Kenya at the Moi
International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Wednesday, June 5, Malawi
would also be playing Namibia’s Brave Warriors in Blantyre.

Also, while the Eagles take the pitch against the Brave Warriors in
Windhoek on Wednesday, June 12, Malawi would also be hosting Kenya’s
Harambee Stars in Blantyre.
