Nigeria Vs Central African Republic: FIFA Confirms Venue, Date

FIFA has confirmed that Nigeria will host the Central African Republic at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos on October 10 in the qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup double-header.

The world football governing body also said the reverse fixture will take place three days later at the Stade De Japoma, Douala, Cameroon.

The decision to play in Cameroon is due to insecurity and the Central African Republic stadium not up to the standard required by FIFA.

Gernot Rohr and his men began their qualifying campaign with a 2-0 win against the Lone Star of Liberia last month.

The three-time African champions then defeated the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde 2-1 four days later in Mindelo

Nigeria’s Super Eagles top Group C with six points from two games.

The top team in the group will proceed to final play-off round.
