U-20 AFCON: Flying Eagles To Face Zambia In Two Friendly Matches

The Flying Eagles of Nigeria will tackle Zambia in two exhibition matches ahead of this year’s Africa Under 20 Cup of Nations.

The two matches are billed to take place on Friday, 27th January and Monday, 30th January 2023 respectively in Abuja.

Through a letter dated 14th January 2023, Adrian Kashala, FAZ’s General Secretary, said the Zambia football-ruling body was agreeable to the proposal.

The proposal for the tour includes FAZ flying the Junior Chipolopolo to Nigeria while the NFF will bear the cost of accommodation, feeding and other logistics for the Zambia delegation.

Flying Eagles have since been in camp and played two friendly games, winning both and scoring a total of 11 goals as they continue to intensify preparation for the tournament.

All four semi-finalists in Egypt will qualify to represent Africa at the FIFA Under 20 World Cup finals slated for Indonesia from 20th May to 11th June this year.
