Abuja - The delegation of Nigeria’s Super Eagles B landed in Ouagadougou, capital of Burkina Faso, on Friday at about 10.10pm Nigeria time, ahead of Sunday's African Nations Championship final qualifying match against the Etalons.

A delegation including 23 players and 13 technical and backroom officials was led by NFF 2nd Vice President/LMC chairman Shehu Dikko, and travelled aboard a chartered ARIK Air Bombadier aircraft from the Port Harcourt International Airport. The trip was slightly less than two hours.

The Super Eagles B will have the official training at the August 4 Stadium in Ouagadougou on Saturday evening, with the match to start at 4.00pm (5pm Nigeria time) on Sunday at the same venue.
