AYC: Flying Eagles Receive Boost

Nigeria’s U-20 team, the Flying Eagles, on Monday, received boost, following the return of first-choice goalkeeper Joshua Enahoro, who has served out his one-match ban after his dismissal against Congo.

Also, midfielder Ifeanyi Matthew, who was rested against Cote d’Ivoire, as well as defender Izu Omego, who the coaches did not want to risk because he was already on a booking, are all fit to take on Ghana tomorrow.

Extra Time gathered that the team are now safely back at ‘Lucky’ Alafifa Hotel, after an hour’s bus ride from Mbour, on Monday.

It was from Alafifa Hotel that the Flying Eagles won their first two group games before they traveled to Mbour for their final group game against Cote d’Ivoire, which ended in a 2-2 draw.

The Flying Eagles trained at the Diambars Academy in Mbour on Monday morning and, after lunch, headed for Dakar.

Tomorrow’s semi-final at the Leopold Sedar Senghor Stadium will kick-off at 5pm local time, which will be 6pm in Nigeria.
