NFF motivates U23 Eagles ahead of second-leg qualifier against Sudan


The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says there is a lot to play for in the second-leg of the Africa U23 Cup of Nations qualifier between Nigeria and Sudan.

Nigeria’s U23 Eagles, Thursday, fell 1-0 in Omdurman to their Sudanese counterpart, and must now overturn the deficit in the reverse fixture to go through.


The NFF on Twitter said “There is so much to play for, for the Under 23 Eagles” a statement which oozes confidence.



The second-leg will come up on Tuesday, September 10 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, Delta State.


It would be recalled that the Nigerian Under 23 team also lost their first-leg game against Libya, 2-0, in the second round but turned it around in the home second-leg, winning 4-0 to progress.
