World Cup 2022 play-off draw: Nigeria to face eternal rivals Ghana

Nigeria to face Ghana to qualify for world cup

The Ghanaians would be hoping to navigate past Nigeria to qualify for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have been drawn to face the Black Stars of Ghana in the play-offs of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Its seems it would be a “jollof” battle between two teams who have been bitter rivals for many years. Not only in football but in other areas of life.

The draw held on Saturday at Douala by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) director of competitions Samson Adamu, alongside Senegal’s sporting great El Hadji Diouf and Togo captain Emmanuel Adebayor.

Ghana would be hoping to appease their fans for an early exit from AFCON 2021 when they host the first leg of the encounter between March 24 to 29, 2022, with Nigeria hosting the return leg at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.


If Nigeria qualify, it would be the seventh time they would qualify for the world showpiece, with only Cameroon edging them in terms of appearance.

Elsewhere, Egypt have been drawn against Senegal, Cameroon will take on Algeria and Mali will square up against Tunisia as they hope to make their debut appearance in the competition.

Lastly, DR Congo will battle against Morocco to complete the five play-off fixtures.

Winners of the two legged ties will have a chance to represent Africa in Qatar. The competition is scheduled to be held between 21st November – 18th December 2022.
