On Thursday, executives from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) will gather in Algiers, Algeria, to vote on the qualification process for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
North American countries, Canada, Mexico, and the United States, will host the competition.
It will be a larger World Cup, with 48 teams competing instead of 32.
At the 2026 FIFA World Cup, Africa will be represented by nine teams.
The Super Eagles did not qualify for the most recent edition of the global soccer festival, which was hosted by Qatar.
CAF will also discuss the bids made for hosting the Women’s Champions League this year, as well as the status report for next year’s AFCON in Cote d’Ivoire.
