A strong line-up,which includes players from both Barcelona and Espanyol football clubs have been announced to face the Super Eagles of Nigeria on January 2nd,2013.

Nigeria will play an international friendly game next month against Catalonia,as one of their tune matches,going into the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa.

This will be the second time Nigeria will be facing a Catalonia select,having lost the first one in December 1998 by as much as 5-0.

The Catalonian side will be coached by Barcelona legend, Johan Cruyff and he has already released his choice of players for the tie.

Espanyol players chosen are: Joan Verdú, Joan Capdevila, Sergio García, Kiko Casilla, Raúl Rodríguez, Víctor Sánchez, Sergio Tejera. While Barcelona players include :Víctor Valdés, Xavi Hernández, Carles Puyol, Gerard Piqué, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, Martín Montoya, Sergi Roberto, Cristian Tello, Marc Bartra. Other players are Bojan Krkic from AC Milan, Álvaro Vázquez from Getafe, Jordi Amat and ”Piti” from Rayo Vallecano and Jonathan Soriano from Red Bull Salzburg completing the list.

Former Arsenal player,Cesc Fabregas will miss the game,due to an injury.

Majority of the players that will line up for Nigeria,would be those from the Nigeria Premier League as most of the foreign players are expected to join up with the team in Faro,Portugal on January 4th.

Can Nigeria cope with the menacing skills of these Spanish players on January 2nd, we will find out then.

It's good to be coached by strong hands than be coached by mediocre like the ones on your list.

Yeah. The match takes place on January 2, while the foreign-based players would start reporting to camp on January 4. So this match comes too soon for d foreign-based stars.
I hope the Naija team can get at least, a draw
