IfeanyiUba Football Club, the Nigeria Professional Football League
(NPFL) side, will play the Flying Eagles on Saturday in one of the
latter’s tune-up matches ahead of the Africa U-20 Nations Cup
qualifier in Burundi.
Flying Eagles will arrive Nnewi, the venue of the encounter, on Friday.
It has been gathered that due to IfeanyiUba’s NPFL week 16 encounter
against Enyimba in Umuahia on Sunday, the Nnewi side is expected to
parade its fringe players in the match, which is merely to serve as a
preparatory encounter for the Flying Eagles.
The Flying Eagles will play Burundi in the first leg of its 2017
Africa U-20 Nations Cup qualifying tie on May 21 in Bujumbura, while
the return leg comes up in Abuja on June 11. The Nigerians are African
champions at U-20 level.
