The Bolivian Football Federation [FBF] has reportedly pulled out of the international friendly match with Nigeria scheduled for Uyo on March 26.
According to Bolivian newspaper La Razon, the country’s football federation has cited security concerns for opting out of the international friendly match with the Nigerians.
“The armed conflict in Nigeria has forced the cancellation of the game,” said president of the FBF, Carlos Chavez, in a press conference in Santa Cruz de la Sierra.
La Razon had earlier reported that the Bolivian FA was engaged in talks on how to withdraw from the friendly “with the intention of avoiding a financial penalty for breach of contract” though a decision has been taken to withdraw.
The Bolivian newspaper even quoted a source close to the leadership of the country’s football federation saying: “That game is not going to be held.
Now the FBF seeks to raise a strong defence because Nigerians will protest and request sanctions for non-compliance.”
