Flying Eagles to tackle Lesotho

26 May 2014, 10:49Israel Ojoko

Kaduna - Nigeria’s Flying Eagles will battle Lesotho in the third and final round of the African Youth Championship (AYC) qualifiers in August after the Southern Africans eliminated Angola.

Little Lesotho completed the double over Angola on Sunday when they beat the home team 1-0 to go through to the next on a 4-1 aggregate.

The Flying Eagles will host the shock troopers on August 16, while the return leg will be a fortnight later.

The overall winners will advance to the 2015 AYC to be hosted by Senegal in March.

Lesotho made their AYC debut at the 2005 tournament staged by Benin Republic. They lost 2-0 to Morocco, upset Angola 1-0 before they crumbled 4-1 to Egypt.

Lesotho recorded only a point at the 2011 AYC, which the Junior Eagles won in South Africa.

They lost 2-0 to Egypt, 2-1 to hosts South Africa, before they forced Mali to a 1-1 draw to finish bottom of their first round group.
