Sudan Beats Nigeria’s Flying Eagles to Win Zambia 2017 Ticket

Flying Eagles today shockingly lost on home soil to Sudan at the commercial capital of Nigeria, Lagos State.


The Nigerian U-20 team will be absent at the AFCON U-20 Nations Cup in Zambia after the Flying Eagles suffered a shock 3-4 loss to Sudan on Saturday in Lagos.

Having won the first leg away from home a fortnight ago, many had expected the Flying Eagles to seal their place in Zambia in an emphatic style in Lagos.

However that was not the case as a more purposeful display by the Sudanese saw them snatch the ticket via the away goals rule as aggregate scores stood at 5-5.

This is a new low for Nigeria whose national team have failed to qualify for the last two Afcon finals.

The 2017 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations will be the 20th edition of the biennial international youth football tournament organized by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for players aged 20 and below.
