Rivers State government has agreed to stage the 2018 World Cup qualifier between the Super Eagles and Algeria in Port Harcourt in November.
The game is slated for the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt on November 7 after earlier reports suggested the game will be played in Uyo.
It will be the second 2018 World Cup qualifier involving both countries as Nigeria will face Zambia in Ndola on October 9, while Algeria and Cameroun go toe to toe the same day in Blida.
Rivers State Commissioner of sport Boma Iyaye said Port Harcourt is ready to play the perfect host ahead of the big fixture.
He added that “It is the utmost desire of the Rivers State Government to support the Super Eagles to ensure qualification for the 2018 Fifa World Cup finals in Russia.”
