The Super Falcons of Nigeria will know their group opponents at next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand on Saturday, reports PNO Sports.
The draw ceremony will take place in Auckland, New Zealand.
The 2023 World Cup will be hosted by Australia and New Zealand between July 20 and August 20, 2023.
Nine-time African champions Nigeria face a tough draw after they were drawn in Pot 4 with the weakest qualifiers for the World Cup PNO Sports reports.
This means they could face some of the heavyweights in world football at this level like reigning champions USA, the Netherlands, Spain, Japan, France, England and Germany by the first round of the tournament.
The Falcons reached the knockout rounds of the 2019 World Cup hosted by France.
