U-20 Qualifiers: Mauritania In For Flying Eagles Clash
The Mauritanian delegation have arrived in Lagos ahead of Saturday’s Africa U20 Cup of Nations qualifier against the Flying Eagles at the Agege Stadium in Lagos.
The first leg between this two teams ended in a stalemate so there is still very much to play for this weekend.
The Mauritania U20 squad has been together, on-and-off basis, for the past four years and play a quick, passing game though they mostly falter in the final third.
But they would be hoping they can get it right and shock the Flying Eagles who are one of the most successive African team at this level.
Nigeria have been champions of Africa at U20 level in 1983, 1985, 1987, 1989, 2005, 2011 and 2015.
Saturday’s cracker kicks off at 4pm, with the seven –time African champions guaranteed a spot in the finals in Niger Republic early next year if they avoid defeat or a high –score draw.
