The delegation will be made up of 23 players, technical officials, members of NFF Executive Committee, NFF Staff, representatives of the media, football stakeholders and members of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club.

Recall that the last time both senior teams  met was in  December 1980, but there have been clashes at junior level, and an African Women Championship qualifying fixture in recent years.

Nigeria is second in Group G while the hosts sit at the base of the group following their defeat to Egypt in the opening day of the qualifier.
