NFF Eager to Avoid Repeat of Flying Eagles U20 AFCON Qualification Fiasco

The Nigeria Football Federation is keen to avoid a repeat of the 2017 U20 AFCON qualification disaster with the Flying Eagles and will take steps to ensure the team gets every support to succeed Secretary General, Mohammed Sanusi has stated.

Nigeria failed to reach the 2017 edition of the biennial tournament losing the ticket; in very dramatic fashion, to Sudan in a 5-5 aggregate result.

The Flying Eagles coached by Emmanuel Amunike at the time, lost on away-goal rule, with the 3-4 defeat in Lagos dealing the death knell to a potential title defence in Zambia.


In a telephone conversation with Brila.net the FA scribe identified the recent two-match tour of Egypt as part of the team’s preparation for the qualifiers, hoping the current team can go all the way.
