Others include the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos, Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin and Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Uyo.

It remains to be seen which of these stadiums will host the three home games, but the Akwa Ibom international stadium in Uyo is the favourite.

The stadium has hosted a majority of Super Eagles games since 2015, including all of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
However, the Teslim Balogun and Samuel Ogbemudia stadium are also options, with both stadiums hosting Nigeria’s last two games in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.
