English premier league side Arsenal has cancelled their pre-season trip to Nigeria where they were scheduled to play a friendly with the West African country's national team.

The club's Marketing director Angus Kinnear said the decision is as a result of complexities linked to the planned game in Abuja on 5th August. The statement posted on the clubs website adds, the club couldn't get comfortable on everything needed to satisfy their requirements forcing the club to postpone the trip. Nigeria is one of Africa's most football crazed nations and many fans were looking forward to the trip.
