2014 World Cup: Nigeria vs Kenya Now June 6th

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has confirmed that the date for the 2014 World Cup qualifier pitting African champions Nigeria against Kenya has been changed.

The development comes after Nigeria were crowned champions of the African Cup of Nations and will represent the continent in Brazil during the Confederations Cup.
“The World Football Governing Body FIFA has communicated to Football Kenya Federation on the possibility of changing the dates for the Kenya, Nigeria Brazil World Cup qualifier.”
“This has arisen due to Nigeria’s qualification to represent Africa in the FIFA confederations Cup to be played in Brazil from 15th to 23rd June 2013. The World Cup organising committee has therefore requested Kenya to reschedule the return leg at least two days before the 10th of June that means the match be played on 6th or 7th of June,” the statement read.
FIFA is expected to hold an executive meeting on March 19th to decide on the exact dates.
