Kelechi Nwakali and his victorious Nigeria U-20 team-mates to Saturday’s 2017 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifying match against Burundi in Bujumbura will return to the country on Monday.
According to the NFF, the Coach Emmanuel Amuneke led side will return aboard an Ethiopian Airline flight from Addis Ababa.
Amuneke led the Flying Eagles to a 1-0 win over the Young Swallows of Burundi in a second round, first leg qualifier at the Stade Prince Louis Rwagasore.
Defensive midfielder Chukwudi Agor scored the match’s only goal in the 68th minute as the Flying Eagles, made up largely of last year’s FIFA U-17 World Cup champions, dominated in all aspects.
Nwakali and his team-mates will welcome Burundi for the second leg match billed for the UJ Esuene Stadium, Calabar on Saturday, 11th June.
