The Football Federation of Guinea-Bissau (FFGB) has officially secured Morocco as the host venue for the 2023 African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Nigeria.

The Matchday 3 and 4 double-header between the Super Eagles and the Djurtus are due in March.

Nigeria will host the first leg fixture on March 23 at the CAF/FIFA-approved MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja, while the Guineans will welcome Jose Peserio and his star-studded Super Eagles in the return leg in Morocco.

The development came after the Football Federation of Guinea-Bissau failed to have its stadium approved for the qualifier after the expiration of the February 7 deadline given by the CAF.
