The final World Cup decider of Nigeria and Ghana on Tuesday can have a full capacity crowd attendance. The official capacity of the Moshood Abiola Stadium is put at 60,000.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has given approval to Nigeria to have 60,000 spectators for the 2022 World Cup play-off second leg tie against Ghana.

The Super Eagles will tackle the Black Stars to decide which team picks one of the five slots for Africa at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

It is gathered that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) made the request to have 60,000 people at the stadium for the crucial encounter and was promptly granted by CAF.

CAF initially approved 30,000 fans for the highly anticipated encounter but with the stakes being much higher, the NFF requested for 30,000 more.

CAF also allowed a full capacity at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi during the first leg. The stadium, unlike that in Abuja holds 40,000 fans.
