Super Eagles Game With Ghana Gets New Date

The winner over two legs in the play-offs will qualify for this year’s World Cup which is scheduled to take place from November 21 to December 18, 2022, in Qatar. While the Super Eagles of Nigeria qualified for the 2018 edition in Russia, the Black Stars missed out and so will be looking to ensure they make it this year’s own at the expense of Nigeria.

The last time both teams met in the qualifiers for the World Cup was for the 2002 edition, where they were drawn in the same group. In a group that had Liberia, Ghana, Sudan and Sierra Leone, the Eagles secured their third World Cup qualification ticket.
