Three-time African champions Nigeria will on Thursday (today) know their group stage opponents when the draw ceremony for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations holds in Abidjan, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

The Super Eagles’ drop in the latest FIFA rankings saw them seeded in Pot 2 and they are destined to face either hosts Ivory Coast or any of the top four African countries.

With the large number of North African countries in Pot 1, the Eagles chances of being paired alongside either Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria are very high.

While the probability of coming up against the Maghreb nations is very high, the Eagles could equally find themselves in the same group with Ivory Coast or Senegal.https://live.primis-amp.tech/content/video/amp/videoIframe.php?s=113240#amp=1
