World football governing body Fifa has changed the dates for next month’s 2022 World Cup play-off matches between Ghana and Nigeria.
The two-legged showdown which was originally scheduled for Thursday, March 24 and Sunday, March 27, in Accra and Abuja respectively has been moved to Friday, March 25 and Tuesday, March 29, 2022.
The first leg will take place at the Cape Coast Stadium whereas the second leg takes place at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.
The winner of the tie will represent the continent at the world football showpiece which is scheduled to take place from November 21 to December 18, 2022 in Qatar.
Ghana is looking to secure victory over Nigeria to secure a return to the World Cup after missing out on the 2018 showpiece in Russia.
Nigeria, on the other hand, is targeting a fourth successive berth at the World Cup after successes in 2010, 2014 and 2018.
