The sixteen cities which are across the three countries were approved to stage the largest World Cup ever with 48 teams expanding from its current format of 32.

The US cities include Kansas City, Dallas, Atlanta, Houston, New York/New Jersey, Boston, Seattle, Philadelphia, Miami, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

The continent currently has five automatic slots in the competition.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will be missing out on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The team’s new manager, Jose Peseiro has begun efforts to rejig the team as the Eagles recently secured a 10-0 victory over Sao Tome.
