Coach: Gernot Rohr.

Who will be the referee and his assistants?
He will be assisted by his compatriots Mokrane Gourari as assistant referee 1, Abbes Akram Zerhouni as assistant referee 2 and Lahlou Benbraham will be the fourth official.
This is how Cape Verde arrives
Coach Bubista's team came from behind to prevail in two of those games, performances that have kept their dream of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup for the first time alive.
The goals have been shared by the entire Cape Verde squad and only Julio Tavares has scored twice in their Group C matches. While Nigeria comes as favorites for the match, it would be naive to rule out Cape Verde's chances.

This is how Nigeria arrives
Nigeria after that unexpected defeat have recorded another six points to stay ahead of their next rivals within the group. They defeated Liberia 2-0 last Saturday and it looked like a comfortable victory, but Nigeria relied on penalties from Victor Osimhen and Ahmed Musa to claim victory in Morocco.
Victor Osimhen now has three goals in this knockout stage heading to Qatar 2022, taking a step forward at a time when Kelechi Iheanacho has not scored since the start.
The match will be played at Teslim Balogun Stadium
The Teslim Balogun Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located in Lagos, Nigeria. It is currently used primarily for football matches and serves as the home field of First Bank FC. The stadium seats 24,325 people and sits next to the Lagos National Stadium. It was completed in 2007, took 23 years to build, and cost more than $ 1.3 million. Started in 1984 under the administration of the military governor Gbolahan Mudasiru, construction continued to stagnate under military regimes and the stadium was turned into a white elephant. In 2006, homeless people and children lived in the facility area. In 2009 the stadium was used to host the 2009 U-17 Soccer World Cup.
