The Super Eagles have been drawn to face either Djibouti or Swaziland in the second qualifying round of the 2018 World Cup.
The draw was held in St Petersburg, Russia on Saturday.
The minnows will face each other in October in the first round of the long qualifying campaign, with the winners meeting the 2013 African champions in November.
If Nigeria advance beyond Djibouti or Swaziland as expected, they will be one of 20 teams in the final qualifying round.
The 20 teams will be pooled in five groups of four teams each, with the five group winners qualifying for Russia 2018.
