South Africa and Nigeria to renew rivalry at U-20 AFCON

The Flying Eagles of Nigeria will take the Amajita of South Africa in a Group B clash at the U-20 AFCON in Niger.

Nigeria are top of the group and could seal qualification for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland with a win.

Flying Eagles coach Paul Aigbogun has urged his players to go for the kill against their group rivals.

“We must recognize that our group is very strong and we must be careful against our next opponent. It is for us to take the games one after the other without neglecting or underrating any team

We are entering a second game that will be different from the first which we won. I can’t say that our team will play in the same style as against Burundi but we know one thing; we are here to qualify for the World Cup”
