Nigeria and Serbia will lock horns in an international friendly at the Hive stadium in London.

Matic, a former Chelsea player, who now plies his trade with Manchester United, was named the new assistant captain of the Serbia national team by Coach Mladen Krstajic ahead of the game.

Matic said the Super Eagles are a good side and playing against them will be an encounter to enjoy.

He told, “Let’s see in these two games where we are.

“We do not know Morocco, but the expert staff has saved the material. Nigeria is good, I know some of their players, and it will be a game to enjoy.”

Matic played alongside Mikel Obi, Victor Moses and Ola Aina at Stamford Bridge before he switched to United last season.

Matic has also faced Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi, Ahmed Musa, Odion Ighalo in English Premier League encounters.

All seven players are expected to feature for the Super Eagles against his Serbia team next Tuesday.

Matic has scored twice for Serbia in 36 international appearances since he made his debut against Poland on the 14th of December, 2008.
