While seeded in Pot 2, the Falconets could still face some tough competition in the group stage. Teams like Germany, Argentina, and even Costa Rica, the host nation, are all possibilities. This first stage will be crucial in setting the path for the rest of the tournament.

Thankfully, Nigeria avoids facing top-ranked teams like the USA, Brazil, and the Netherlands in the initial group draw. They’ll also steer clear of fellow African representatives Ghana (Pot 3) and Cameroon and Morocco (both in Pot 4).

Joining Nigeria in representing Africa are Cameroon, Ghana, and Morocco. 

In total, 24 nations will vie for the championship title: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Fiji, France, Germany, Ghana, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Paraguay, Spain, USA, and Venezuela.
