Nigeria, Morocco clash in friendly

31 March 2014, 18:13Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Nigeria U20 team will engage their Moroccan counterparts in a two-legged friendly in Casablanca on April 9 and 11.

The team will depart the country for Morocco on Sunday, April 6, with a 20-man squad.

The Flying Eagles have already regrouped in Abuja preparatory to a 2015 African Youth Championship qualifier in May.

This followed a short break given the players after a month-long rigorous screening exercise in Abuja.

Coach Manu Garba has called up 35 players, who have been booked into Serob Legacy Hotel in Area 1 Abuja.

The seven invitees who are based overseas are also expected to join up with the rest of the squad this week.

Team secretary Aliyu Auwal Ibrahim said letters to their various foreign clubs have been sent out to that effect.

Nigeria are billed to face the winners of the qualifying match between Kenya and Tanzania next month in continuation of the qualifying tournament to be hosted by Senegal in March 2015.

The Flying Eagles have won the competition a record six times.
