While Mexico will use the match to prepare for the World Cup, Nigeria will be hoping that it marks the start of a new era in Nigerian football as the NFF continues to search for replacements for the technical crew that were dismissed after Ghana beat Nigeria to the World Cup ticket. It will be recalled that Nigeria and Ghana in a two-legged play-off finished 1-1 on aggregate, but Ghana got the ticket due to away goal rule after a 0-0 draw in Ghana and 1-1 at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.
