The Confederation Cup group game between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Spain has been sold out totally, according to the FIFA Coordinator for Fortaleza, Marc Andreas Harold.
“As we speak, over 50,000 tickets have already been sold for the 55,000 capacity stadium and people are still requesting for more. In fact the tickets have become very scarce and I think it’s because of the quality of the two teams,” Harold said moments after the Super Eagles boss, Stephen Keshi, and Skipper Vincent Enyeama addressed the world press ahead of the game.
Harold said he expects a very tight game that is almost impossible to predict and wished Nigeria well against the double champions.
He said: “You have no reason to lose the last game but it happened.
“Now, there is an opportunity to correct that and I know that Spain too will be looking for victory.
“It’s going to be very tight for the two teams.”
