Dream Team gets tough AAG draw, Falcons get easy group

10 July 2015, 07:50

Abuja - The Nigerian U23 men's team, the Dream Team VI, have been placed in a potentially tough group at the forthcoming All Africa Games in Congo. 

The Dream Team VI, who qualified at the expense of Zambia, will play in Group B of the competition, and will come up against Ghana, Senegal and Egypt. 

The draws, which were announced on Thursday by CAF, however, sees the national senior women's team, the Super Falcons in a relatively easier group, as they will face off with hosts, Congo, Cote D' Ivoire and Tanzania in Group A of the women's competition.

Group B for the women will see South Africa, Cameroon, Ghana and Egypt play against one another, while Group A for the men has hosts, Congo, Zimbabwe, Sudan and Burkina Faso. 

Ironically, with the Falcons and Dream Team meeting Tanzania and Egypt in their respective groups, the Super Eagles will also play the senior men's teams of both countries when the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers resume.
