Lagos - Nigeria’s Flying Eagles will host their Tanzanian counterparts in a 2015 AYC second round, second leg clash at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna.

The match will be played on Saturday, May 24.

The Flying Eagles defeated the Ngorongoro Heroes 2-0 on Sunday in the first leg encounter at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam with second-half goals from Musa Yahaya and Taiwo Awoniyi.

The team led by NFF executive committee member Shehu Adamu flew back to Abuja Monday afternoon from Tanzania after a stopover in Addis Ababa and headed straight to Kaduna, where a squad of 25 players will train ahead of the return match.

The team are booked into the African Continental Hotel.

Team secretary Auwal Aliyu Ibrahim said they have already settled down and will resume full training Tuesday evening at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna.
