Nigeria’s Flying Eagles to play Morocco in friendly

The matches will take place in Casablanca.

The Nigeria U20 team, the Flying Eagles, will play Morocco in a two-legged friendly in Casablanca on April 9 and 11 respectively, an official has announced.

The team, according to the media officer, Samm Audu, will depart the country for Morocco on Sunday, April 6, with a 20-man squad.

The Flying Eagles regrouped in Abuja on Sunday for preparations towards the 2015 African Youth Championship qualifier in May.

Coach Manu Garba had called up 35 players, including seven foreign based players who are expected to join the rest of the team this week. The team secretary, Aliyu Ibrahim, said letters to their various foreign clubs have been sent out to that effect.

The team is currently lodged at Serob Legacy Hotel in Area 1, Abuja.

Nigeria will face the winners of the qualifying match between Kenya and Tanzania next month so that the team can continue with the qualifying tournament which will be hosted by Senegal in March 2015.

The Nigeria Flying Eagles are six-time winners of the tournament.
