Lagos, Nigeria (PANA) - The kick-off time for the Nigeria-Nambia 2014 World Cup qualifying match, to be played in Nigeria's Southern city of Calabar 3 June, has been moved forward by one hour, the host Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said.
It said world soccer's governing body FIFA agreed to its (NFF's) request to shift the kick-off time from 5pm to 4pm local time on the same day.
Sudanese referees and a Gambian Match Commissioner will preside at the match, one of many slated for the weekend of 1-3 June across Africa.
The Namibian delegation, including players and officials, are due to arrive in Nigeria Thursday.
