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.
