The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualification game between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Guinea Bissau would be played in Morocco, according to the Royal Football Federation of Morocco (FRMF).

Later in March, the Super Eagles will face the Djurtus of Guinea Bissau twice, and if they win both contests, they will travel to the Ivory Coast the following year for the Nations Cup.

Nigeria now has six points in Group A after defeating Sierra Leone 2-1 at home and Sao Tome & Principe 10-0 away.

Nigeria will host Guinea-Bissau on March 20 at either the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo or the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja before departing for the rematch in Morocco one week later.

Nevertheless, Morocco will host the second match between the two countries, according to a recent report from Morocco.

The Super Eagles will be hoping for a repeat of their recent trip to Morocco, where they defeated Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 in matchday two of the AFCON qualifying matches against them at Stade Adrar.

A statement from the FRMF read: “In response to a request from several African football federations, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation agreed to host three matches in Morocco in March as a part of the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
