The Super Eagles of Nigeria have been drawn to face the Black Stars of Ghana in the final round of World Cup qualifier for Qatar 2022.
Ghana have just been eliminated at the ongoing African Nations Cup tournament in Cameroon, garnering only one point from three matches to become last in their group.
The Black Stars lost 1-0 to Morocco and lost 3-2 to minor Comoros to crash out of the tournament.
On the other hand, the Super Eagles won on their three matches in AFCON group stage to top Group D, scoring six goals and conceding only one from the penalty spot.
On current form, many will tip the Super Eagles to fly over Ghana.

The games will be played between March 23 and 29, 2022.
