The Nigerian boys gear up for the African U-17 Championship taking place in Morocco.
The Botswana male U-17 team are expected to arrive in Nigeria, Friday, following a two-match friendly that has been organized against the Nigerian male U-17, the Golden Eaglets, at the U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar.
The matches will take place on March 2 and 4 in Calabar, Cross River State.
The matches were organised to prepare the Nigerian boys for the final phase of the African U-17 Championship taking place in Morocco between April 13 and 17.
Coach Manu Garba’s boys have remained unbeaten in 20 friendly and competitive matches since coming on stream last year. The Golden Eaglets also swept into the African U-17 finals by winning all six qualifying matches, scoring 21 goals and conceding only one.
The Eaglets played a similar two-leg friendly against the Rwandan U-17 team, also in Calabar, both of which they won comfortably.
The Eaglets have been scheduled to leave the country for Qatar on March 13, for a four-week final preparatory programme ahead of the tournament.
