Lagos - Golden Eaglets will host DR Congo in the return leg
of the U17 African Championship qualifier this weekend in Abeokuta, a venue
that is home coming of sort for goalkeeper Akpan Udoh.
Though hails from South-South in Akwa Ibom, Udoh has lived
mostly in Ogun State, precisely in Ijebu-Remo. The former Under-13 attached to
Remo Football Academy was one of the lads picked by Uplift Team - a project by
Olufunso Amosun - to tour Udinese last year.
"I'm happy to come back to Abeokuta particularly with
the National Under-17 team," said Udoh who was a silver medal winner for
Ogun State at the 2013 chief of Naval Staff Cup.
“We are looking forward to a good game against Congo DR. and
we are therefore, calling on the fans to come and cheer us on Saturday."
