he Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) the date for the final leg of the Nigeria vs Ghana FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifier match.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports the NFF confirmed the date on Wednesday in a potentially explosive fixture that will be held at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja on Sunday, 27th March 2022.
However, the Ghana Football Association was yet to confirm whether the first leg inside the Cape Coast Stadium will be on Wednesday, 23rd March or Thursday, 24th March.
The final leg encounter will be the 59th clash at senior level between both West African giants in a chequered 71-year rivalry.
It will also be the first game involving the Super Eagles at the country’s premium sporting arena since the Eagles defeated Sudan’s Falcons of Jediane 3-1 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match on 15th October 2014.
Nigeria reached the play-off round after topping a qualifying pool that included Cape Verde, Liberia and the Central African Republic while Ghana emerged from the section that had South Africa, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia.
