The North London club would have been participating in their own Emirates Cup tournament, but decided to postpone the event due to the 2012 London Olympics.
David Omigie of DanJan Sports, speaking last month, said. “We are delighted to announce that Arsenal Football Club will face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Abuja,”
“The NFF has agreed that the country will present a strong side as coach Stephen Keshi continues his development process.
“The Arsenal manager (Arsene Wenger) will also use this game to showcase his full squad for the 2012/2013 football season.”
Arsenal have once again left out striker Robin van Persie, who has been linked with a move away from the club ever since he announced his intention to see out his current deal at The Emirates and not sign a new one.
