Flying Eagles begin preparations for WAFU U20 tournament

Nigeria’s under 20 team, the Flying Eagles have kicked off preparations for the WAFU UFOA B zonal qualification tournament in Abuja.

The team was earlier expected to begin their preparations for the competition last weekend but was pushed by a week following the End Sars protests in some parts of the country.

Head coach Ladan Bosso took charge of the training session along with his assistants.

The Flying Eagles will face the Black Starlets of Ghana and the Petite Elephants of Cote d’lvoire in Group B.

Host nation Togo will compete in Group A alongside Niger, Benin Republic and Burkina Faso.

The competition will start on November 14 in Lome, Togo.

The top two teams (finalists) in each qualification zone will qualify for the main tournament which has now been expanded to a 12-team tournament in Mauritania next year.
