Nigeria Vs Saudi Arabia Friendly: FIFA Appoints Referees, VAR Officials

Portuguese official, Luis Godinho, has been appointed by FIFA as referee for the international friendly match between Nigeria and Saudi Arabia, at the Estadio Municipal de Portimão on Oct. 13 at 5pm.

This development was disclosed in a statement by the Director of Communications for Nigeria Football Federation, Ademola Olajire, on Thursday in Abuja.

Other officials who will be assisting Godinho in the match are: Bruno Jesus (assistant referee one), Tiago Costa (assistant referee two) and Miguel Noguera, fourth official.

The situation in the Video Assistant Referee room will be headed by Helder Carvalho and assisted by Bruno Vieira in the second-ever clash between both countries.

Going memory lane, the Super Eagles and the Green Falcons both settled for goaless draw in a pre-2010 FIFA World Cup friendly game at the Alpenstadion in Wattens, Austria on May 25, 2010.

On Oct. 16 at 4pm, the Eagles will take on the Mambas of Mozambique in another friendly, at the same venue.
