The friendly which is in continuation of the Eagles' preparations for the Russia 2018 World Cup, will be hosted in Austria by 2 pm local time.

The Super Eagles had lost 2-1 to England at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday and hope to use the Czech Republic match to redeem its image as they step up their planning for the tournament.

The Eagles will face Croatia, Iceland and Argentina at the Mundial with their first match on June 16.
As the Eagles get set for the match, Head coach of the Super Eagles, Rohr has confirmed the starting lineup which will still have 19-year-old Deportivo La Coruna keeper, Francis Uzoho in goal.

The likes of Ogenyi Onazi and Joel Obi will miss the match with their places taken by Ndidi and John Ogu.
