Asaba — The Super Eagles will play a minimum of three top-notch friendly matches before the start of the 2019 African Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt this summer.

Nigeria will be gunning for their fourth title in Egypt after finishing top of their qualifying group courtesy of a 3-1 win over Seychelles on Friday at the Stephen Keshi stadium.

Rohr said here that the teams they will play in the upcoming friendlies to hold at the end of the European football season will be dependent on their opponents in next month's AFCON draw in Cairo.

"We are looking forward to playing at least three quality friendly matches after the football season ends in Europe.

"I cannot talk more about the teams but I know the foes will be tough and competitive", added Rohr.
