The match day one clash comes up inside the M.K.O. Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Thursday, June 9.
Recall the Leone Stars were grouped with the Eagles during qualifiers for the 2021 AFCON held in Cameroon.
The football minnows pulled off one of the great comebacks in African football, after cancelling a 4-0 deficit to draw 4-4 in Benin City.
