As part of the overall preparations for the Africa U20 Cup of Nations event in Egypt next month, the warm-up game was another practice session for the match against Junior Chipolopolo of Zambia on Saturday at the Moshood Abiola Stadium.

The Flying Eagles’ head coach, Ladan Bosso, told a pleased Peseiro that the squad have a lot of talent and that he is certain the U20 lads will do well enough in Egypt to earn a spot in the FIFA U20 World Cup finals, which will take place in Indonesia later this year.

Prior to their Wednesday departure from Nigeria for Morocco, the Flying Eagles are scheduled to play Zambia’s U20 men’s squad on Saturday.
