Olympic team tackle U20s in friendly game

Nigeria’s Olympic football team will play a friendly match against the U20 side, Flying Eagles on Tuesday in Port Harcourt.

The game is meant to help coach of the national team, Austin Eguavoen test his players ahead of the Olympic Games return leg qualifier against Equatorial Guinea.

The warm up game would serve as dress rehearsal for the flying Eagles who are due for South Africa for the Africa Youth Championship.

Meanwhile, Austin Eguavoen has confirmed that the U-23 team will maintain its Benin camp but will not use the Samuel Ogebudia stadium as the game in Malabo would be played on natural turf.

"We will remain in Benin but will now train either at the University of Benin pitch or Edopolor Grammar School."

After the game against the Flying Eagles, the Olympic team would depart for Lagos on Wednesday and head to Equatorial Guinea on Thursday.
