In previous years, Nigeria has been a continental force in beach soccer, with the Supersand Eagles winning the Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations in 2007 and 2009 and reaching the quarter-finals of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Italy 13 years ago.

The Confederation of African Football conducted the draw for this year’s Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series last week, with the Supersand Eagles drawn to play Mauritania home and away next month.

A total of 14 countries will be involved in the qualifiers, with the seven winners joining hosts Egypt at the finals.

For the first time, the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup will take place on African soil when the Seychelles stage the tournament next year.
