The Warriors of Zimbabwe will host the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the Amarhoro Stadium in Kigali in a 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matchday two fixture next month.

Baltemar Brito’s side will face Rwanda on matchday one and will remain in Kigali for the matchday two encounter against the Super Eagles, according to Zimbabwean website,

Zimbabwe, who are returning to international football after 18-month FIFA ban, are without an approved stadium.

The encounter will hold on Monday, November 20.

The Super Eagles will open their qualifying campaign with an home fixture against the Crocodiles of Lesotho on November 13.
