Super Eagles to play Malawi in Calabar during return leg in September

The Super Eagles will most likely complete their World Cup qualifying series at the UJ Esuene Stadium in Calabar.

It was widely expected that the Eagles would relocate to Abuja for the final Group F qualifier against Malawi in September as well as the knockout final round thereafter.

However, officials have now disclosed that a major work on the pitch if the Abuja National Stadium is still ongoing.

The director general of the National Sports Commission, Gbenga Elegbeleye, stated: "Work is still on the pitch of the stadium. So for now the Eagles will continue to play in Calabar."

The Super Eagles since relocating from Abuja to the southern coastal town of Calabar have not lost any game there.
