2026 World Cup Qualifier: Super Eagles begin campaign with home game against Lesotho

The Super Eagles will host Lesotho in their opening fixture in the qualifiers for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

The encounter is slated for the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on November 13.

Jose Peseiro’s side will then travel to Harare for their next game against Zimbabwe a week later.

The qualifying series will continue in June 2024 with Nigeria hosting the Bafana Bafana of South Africa before a tricky away tie against neighbours Benin Republic.

The Eagles will then continue the marathon qualifying series with a trip to Rwanda followed by a home tie versus Zimbabwe in March 2025.

They then face Rwanda in a reverse tie in August 2025, before a trip to South Africa the following month.

Their final round of qualifiers in October 2025 will be away to Lesotho and at home against Benin.
