The Nigerian Football Federation have for the third time changed the match venue for the game between Nigeria and Cameroun.

The Super Eagles will now battle the Indomitable Lions at the Edmond Machtens Stadium in Brussels on Sunday.

Denderleeuw had initially been scheduled for the game against the Indomitable Lions before the NFF announced Dendermonde as the new ground until a new confirmation was recieved from the Belgian FA regarding the change early hours on Wednesday.

According to a tweet on the official handle of the NFF, the Edmond Machtens Stadium, with a capacity of 11,000,located in the municipality of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean in Brussels, Belgium will now host the encounter.

“After deliberations with the Belgian FA & confirmation, Edmond Machtens Stadium in Brussels will now host Nigeria Vs Cameroon.Kick off -8pm”

The Edmond Machtens Stadium was the home of Belgian Second Division club FC Molenbeek Brussels Strombeek from the 2003 merger between R White Daring Molenbeek and KFC Strombeek to its dissolution in 2014.

The stadium was formerly known as the Oscar Bossaert Stadium and has hosted a number of matches of the Belgium national football team during the 1920s, as well as a friendly game against France in 1945.

Oscar Bossaert was a former Daring Club de Bruxelles player and industrialist. In 2015 a new club with the initials RWDM was created and will occupy the stadium.

The stadium comprises three stands: one behind a goal with only stand-up places, and the other two are seated and located along the ground.

Behind the second goal is a tree row that darkens the field in a special way. There is also 622 places in the business-seats. In 2005 the stand 2 was renamed stand Raymond Goethals in memory of the former player.
