The European summer will witness a slew of friendly matches for the national team and a competitive encounter against Rwanda

Nigeria will play three matches in June, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced.

The three matches slated for June will be in addition to the Gabon and Peru matches that are in the works for the month of May. The NFF revealed this in a statement released in Abuja.

The locally-based Eagles will play on May 23 in Lima to start off a period of five weeks in which the national team will play four matches. The team is expected to play Namibia in a yet to be scheduled venue in Nigeria on June 3 and then confront Malawi, a week later in Blantyre.   

The Super Eagles will play the second leg of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Rwanda on June 17.

The first leg ended in a goalless draw in Kigali – a match that Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi described as an escape for his team. Under Keshi, Nigeria has played five matches; drawn three and won two.
