Nigeria, Tanzania battle in AYC qualifiers

28 April 2014, 11:06Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Nigeria will now battle Tanzania in a 2015 African Youth Championship (AYC) second round in May after the Ngorongoro Heroes eliminated Kenya on Sunday.

Both teams had played out a goalless draw in Kenya three weeks ago before Tanzania edged the tie at home on penalties after another scoreless draw.

It will be a rematch between Nigeria and Tanzania next month after both teams clashed in the qualifying tournament for the 2013 AYC.

Nigeria won the first leg in Tanzania 2-1 with a brace from big striker Alhaji Gero and also won the return in Ilorin 2-0 with goals from Abduljaleel Ajagun and Gero.

Tanzania will host the Flying Eagles in the weekend of May 9-11, while the return leg in Nigeria will be a fortnight later.

The overall winners of this match-up will face the winners of another second round clash between Swaziland and Lesotho against Angola, who were also drawn bye to the second round.
