CAF have approved a request to postpone the 2019 AFCON qualifying fixtures which were scheduled for March next year.

The continent football governing body chose to postpone all second round of matches, so that the teams that have qualified for the World Cup would have enough time to prepare for the tournament to be staged in Russian Federation.

Super Eagles spokesperson Toyin Ibitoye revealed the news on his Twitter feed on Thursday, adding that all five continental representatives will be allowed to play friendlies rather than qualifiers during the scheduled global break.

The change of dates means that Africa's five World Cup finalists can play friendlies in March.

Nigeria were originally billed to take on Seychelles, but they will now use the window to organise at least two friendly games to keep the Super Eagles in shape ahead of the World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation.

The friendly games will keep the Super Eagles in shape ahead of the World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation.

"The 2019 AFCON qualifiers have been postponed, the Super Eagles will play two grade A friendlies in March", said Ibitoye.

"The 2019 AFCON will now be played in June 2019, as against January, when the match schedule was announced so there is more time now for the 2019 AFCON qualifiers to be concluded".
