“It is not only important to me, but it is also important to all of us here, that is what will make us proud as Nigerians,” he said as quoted by

The Black Stars are seeking to return to the tournament after missing out in the last edition in Russia in 2018 while Nigeria aim for a fourth consecutive appearance.

The play-off tie will be played between March 24 and 29, 2022 with exact dates and kick-off times to be confirmed after CAF liaises with the two countries’ associations.
