The Super Eagles have been left with no opponents to play against after arriving in Dallas, Texas for the Green Soccer Bowl tournament.
Organisers were desperately trying to postpone the tournament till March 13, but it is doubtful if the competition will now take place.
Mexico, which were to send their Under 20 team, have cancelled their participation, claiming that tournament organisers did not meet agreed terms and conditions.
Panama have also withdrawn with reports on the Panama FA website saying organisers informed them that the tournament had been postponed due to inability to print tickets on time.
On Friday, organisers and NFF officials were desperately trying to secure friendly scrimmages for Samson Siasia's team with amateur sides and semi professional clubs in Dallas.
