CAF confirm Flying Eagles for 2015 AYC

18 August 2014, 12:29Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have confirmed the qualification of Nigeria to the 2015 African Youth Championship (AYC) in Senegal.

On Saturday, the Flying Eagles walked over Lesotho in a final qualifying match in Kaduna.

Lesotho apparently stayed away from the match after they had expressed concerns over the outbreak of the dreaded Ebola Virus Disease in Nigeria.

“We have finally receive a letter from CAF informing us that we have qualified for the African Youth Championship next year in Senegal after Lesotho failed to turn up on Saturday,” Flying Eagles secretary Aliyu Auwal Ibrahim said.

“As a result of this decision, the team have been decamped on Monday and will resume in line with the coach’s build-up programme for Senegal 2015.”

Hosts Senegal and Nigeria have thus qualified for the eight-team tournament, while six other countries will book their passage in a fortnight after first leg qualifiers were staged at the weekend.
