Flying Eagles, Dream Team clash in Abuja

Ahead of their training tour of the United States of America, the national Under-23 team will take on their Under-20 counterparts, Flying Eagles, in a test game on Saturday at the Abuja National Stadium.

The match will be used by Coaches, Samson Siasia and Emmanuel Amuneke to assess their respective teams as they prepare for the Olympics and the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The last time the two teams met, Flying Eagles won 2-1 but this time around, Siasia’s boys are determined to take their pound of flesh by reversing the result.

Coach Amuneke is however confident that his boys will play their game and see how it goes.

Siasia has several home-based players available as well as some Europe-based players like Shehu Abdullahi, Stanley Amuzie, Etebo Oghenekaro, Mikel Agu, Oke Azubuike, Taiwo Awoniyi amongst others.
