There will be 48 teams in the tournament, up from the usual 32.
Nine teams from Africa will be at the 2026 World Cup.
The Super Eagles didn’t make it to the last world soccer party, which was held in Qatar.
The CAF will also talk about the bids for this year’s Women’s Champions League and the progress report for the AFCON in Cote d’Ivoire next year.
A win over Guinea Bissau might clinch Nigeria’s fate for the next AFCON and ensure qualification from Group A.
Between January and March, the Super Eagles were dealt a double blow: an unexpected withdrawal from the AFCON, followed by a failure to qualify for the World Cup.
Nigeria was eliminated in the round of 16 in the last AFCON by Tunisia and also failed to defeat Ghana in the qualifiers.
