Nigeria U20 team, the Flying Eagles, have arrived Calabar ahead of the U20 AFCON qualifier second leg match against Burundi on Saturday.
Coach Emmanuel Amuneke led a group of 25 players and three officials into Canaan City on Sunday. Striker Victor Osimhen posted a photo on his instagram page as the Eagles arrived in Calabar
Calabar is hosting the return leg match after the African champions pipped the Young Swallows 1-0 in Bujumbura two weeks ago.
The Flying Eagles player on form is Chile 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup bronze ball winner Samuel Chukwueze.
Just two days after his brace helped the Flying Eagles demolish Nigeria National League side Shekarau Babes FC in a friendly played on the artificial pitch of the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja, the winger was again at his imperious best, netting twice in the second half as the Amuneke-led team saw off Amakson Football Academy 3-0 in another friendly at the weekend at the same venue.
