With demonstrations and related violence in Nigeria over fuel subsidies, football federation general secretary Musa Amadu said both countries had agreed to put back Sunday’s game in the Liberian capital of Monrovia to the end of January.

He said in Friday’s statement that the game would be delayed by two weeks, “after which circumstances that have necessitated the shift would surely have normalized.”

Nigeria didn’t qualify for this month’s African Cup of Nations.
