The Super Eagles of Nigeria will know their opponents for the Final Round of Qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar on December 18, when the draw for the final playoffs is staged.

Ten teams have now progressed to the final playoffs, which will be played between March 21 and 29, 2022 on knockout basis.

Nigeria is one of the five seeded teams by virtue of their latest FIFA rankings and will therefore play the first leg of the playoffs away, before they come home for the reverse tie.

The other seeded teams are Senegal, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, meaning the seeded teams will all avoid each other in the playoffs.

Nigeria could therefore draw anyone of the teams who are not seeded, which include Egypt, Ghana, Mali, Cameroon, and D.R. Congo.

The three-time African Champions have participated in all FIFA World Cup Final Tournaments since her debut in 1994 in the United States of America, but narrowly missed the 2006 finals hosted by Germany following head-to-head rule that favoured Angola after finishing with the same points.
