Nigeria vs Lesotho: Another shot at the World Cup for the Super Eagles

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will get their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign underway when they welcome the Crocodiles of Lesotho at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Thursday evening. 

Boasting of a richly talented squad, the Jose Peseiro-led side are the favourites to come out tops when both teams take to the turf to square it out for three points.

For the Super Eagles, missing out on the last World Cup is still fresh in the memories of both players and fans and will be looking to re-write that narrative as the team eye a seventh appearance at the biggest stage in football.
