The 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifier between Namibia's Brave Warriors and Nigeria's Super Eagles, will be shown live on NBC, starting at 20h00 tonight.
The match will also be spread across live on language services of the national broadcaster, The Villager can confirm.
The match will take place at the Sam Nujoma Stadium later tonight and a full-house is expected despite it being aired live.
Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi says he is not worried about the cold weather conditions prevailing in most parts of the country, but looks forward to the tie against Namibia, to be led by interim coach Ricardo Mannetti.
Keshi regard the Namibians high and earlier said both sides will go onto the pitch with the mission of winning.
“Every game is important for us and we will treat it the same as any other game, so we will treat Namibia with all the necessary respect,” he says.
Mannetti initially called on the support of the Namibians to come in droves to the stadium after former coach Roger Palmgren, unceremoniously jumped ship a few days ahead of tonight's match.
Keshi brought a credible line-up that includes international stars like Victor Enyeama of Maccabi Tel Aviv, Jon Obi Mikel of Chelsea, Efe Ambrose of Celtic, Ahmed Musa of CSKA Moscow, Brown Ideye of Dynamo Kiev and Anthony Ujah of FC Koln.
Chelsea striker Victor Moses and Villareal striker Ikechukwu Uche are both out with injuries.
The gates open at 17h00 and the match tickets go for N$50 per person.
