The friendly international between Nigeria and Iran, scheduled for this week, has been called off.

The match was due to have been played in Tehran on Wednesday.

The game was due to have been the final match in charge of the stand-in Nigeria coach, Austin Eguavon, who is being replaced by Samson Siasia.

The postponement comes at a time of tense relations between the two countries, following the discovery of a shipment of arms in Lagos.

The acting secretary-general of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) was quoted by the Associated Press news agency as saying that the game had been called off because key players were “not available”.
