Nigeria’s Super Eagles will kick off their campaign to land a ticket to the 2022 FIFA World Cup today (Friday) in a match against Liberia.
The World Cup qualifier against the Lone Stars is billed to take place at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos.
The game is set to kick off by 5:00p.m, with about 5,000 spectators expected at the renovated Lagos stadium.
Gernot Rohr’s men will also be playing next Tuesday in an away clash against the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde for the matchday two encounter.
“We played them (Liberia) in a home friendly in 2018 and from that team they still have some players. Also, we had the opportunity to watch their three friendly games in June,” Rohr told a virtual press conference.
