The game will be played at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium after the GFA requested that the game be moved to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, which was denied by the Federation.
The return leg at Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja, Nigeria, is set for March 27, three days after the first game. The winner of the two legs will represent Africa at the Mundial, which will take place in Qatar starting November 21.
