Nigeria will battle Algeria for the 2015 U23 AFCON crown tomorrow after both teams qualified for the final.

The final will be played 8pm Nigerian time at the Leopold Sedar Senghor in Dakar.

Both teams have already qualified for next year’s Rio Olympics by virtue of reaching the championship game.

Nigeria edged past hosts Senegal 1-0 in the first semi-final, while Algeria outscored South Africa 2-0.

This will be third time both teams will clash in this tournament since the inaugural competition in Morocco in 2011, which was won by Gabon.

Nigeria thrashed the North Africans 4-1 four years ago, before they drew 0-0 in a group game in Senegal.
