After scaling the hurdle against Junior Taifa star of Tanzania, Nigeria’s Olympic Eagles will square up against Young Syli Nationale in the final round of the AFCON U23 qualifiers.

Nigeria reached the final round of the 2023 Africa U23 Cup of Nations on Saturday after Timilehin Ogunniyi and Success Makanjuola scored in the second leg at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan to condemn visitors Tanzania to a two-goal defeat and 1-3 loss on aggregate.

However, Young Syli Nationale reached the final round of the qualifier without kicking a ball after the Young Cranes of Uganda withdrew from the race.

The Guinean side under coach Morlaye Cissé recognized the importance of the tie and they commenced the preparations.

Nigeria will host the first leg on March 28th and the reverse fixture will take place in Conakry.
