Eaglets To Battle Congo-Kinshasha

The Golden Eaglets would face Democratic Republic of the Congo and not Burundi in next month’s 2015 African U-17 Championship fixture.
Drawn bye into the second round of the qualifiers, the Nigerian Under-17 national team was originally scheduled to meet the overall
winner of the first round fixture between Congo DR and Burundi but the latter according to the continental soccer governing body, CAF, has withdrawn from the competition.
The 2015 CAN Under-17 slated for Niger has already been bedevilled with spate of withdrawals including that of Kenya; Central African Republic; Liberia, Mauritania and Guinea-Bissau.
Gambia was disqualified following their suspension from all CAF competitions. Nigeria in the meantime, would travel to Kinshasa on the weekend of July 18-20 while the return fixture a fortnight later would be held on the weekend of August 1-2.
