“We are looking at a minimum of playing five top class friendlies before the World Cup proper.

“We are looking at countries that are above us in the ranking and countries that are in the top 10 of world football ranking and countries that are in the World Cup as well,” Pinnick said.

He further revealed that some of the countries have been approached and the NFF is expecting to tie down dates for those games.

From grapevine, the countries may be: England, Brazil, Belgium, Columbia and Portugal or Korea.
