Nigeria’s Super Eagles will get to know who their first-round rivals are at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) that will be held in Cameroon next year when the draw is staged on August 15.
The draw for the delayed tournament was originally slated for June 25 before it was postponed for logistical reasons.
Three-time African champions Nigeria are expected to be among the top seeds for the 24-team championship, which will now be played from January 2022.
There will be six groups of four teams each, which will allow for four best losers.
Algeria are the defending champions after they stopped Gernot Rohr and his men in the semifinal of the competition two years ago in Egypt.
