Next Super Eagles opponent: Date & time of the next Nigeria match

Looking for answers to questions like who is the next Super Eagles opponent, or who are Nigeria taking on next and when exactly is the match?

Look no further, we will answer all these questions here, including revealing the date and time of the next Nigeria match.

Nigeria participated in the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON 2024), where they reached the final, losing to Ivory Coast.

With the conclusion of the Nations Cup, Nigeria will set their sights on qualifying for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, and the next Super Eagles opponent is a familiar foe.

It's important to note that the Super Eagles didn't particularly have a great start to their World Cup qualifying campaign, as they drew their first two matches, even though they were the overwhelming favourites to win both games.

As it stands, Nigeria find themselves in third-place, two points behind group leaders Rwanda, and a point behind second-placed South Africa.

With that being said, José Peseiro's men won't play in 2026 World Cup qualifiers anytime soon, as their next qualifying game takes place in June.

Which brings us back to the earlier question about the next Super Eagles opponent and when the next Nigeria match is.

Next Super Eagles opponent

Nigeria's next match after the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations is a friendly match against current FIFA World Cup holders Argentina.

The next Super Eagles match will take place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in the United States.

This match will take place on Tuesday March 26, the kick-off time is yet to be announced.

Nigeria FIFA World Cup qualifying schedule, results

The Super Eagles were drawn in Group C alongside South Africa, Rwanda, Lesotho, Zimbabwe and Benin.

Nigeria started their campaign with a draw against Lesotho, followed by another stalemate with Zimbabwe.

The next Super Eagles opponent in the World Cup qualies is South Africa. Nigeria will meet Bafana Bafana on June 2 at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo.

With eight more games left to play in the qualifying rounds, the Super Eagles will need all the points they can get.

This is because only one team will secure an automatic 2026 FIFA World Cup spot, while the second-placed team will have to go through a playoff stage for a chance to qualify.
