The Super Eagles of Nigeria will travel to Rwanda’s capital city of Kigali on Saturday to face Zimbabwe’s Warriors in a qualifying match for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

A chartered plane will take the players and staff to Kigali.

The plane will take off from Uyo’s Victor Attah International Airport at midnight and land in Kigali at sunrise on the following day.

The group then has a two-hour drive to Butare, the city hosting the game.

The Super Eagles will train at the venue of the game, Huye Stadium, on Saturday night.

On Thursday night in Uyo, Jose Peseiro’s men battled the Likuena of Lesotho to a disappointing 1-1 draw in the first round of the qualifiers.

Zimbabwe’s first game resulted in a scoreless tie with Rwanda.

The Sunday matchup will begin at 4 p.m. local time in Nigeria.

The match official is Djiboutian Souleiman Ahmed Djama, and he will be aided by fellow countrymen Liban Abdoulrazack Ahmed (assistant referee 1), Rachid Waiss Bouraleh (assistant referee 2), and Mohamed Diraneh Guedi (fourth official), both of whom will also be from Djibouti.
