2015 African U-20 qualifier F/Eagles await CAF verdict

THE Flying Eagles will wait on a final verdict from CAF to know if they have qualified for the 2015 African Youth Championship in Senegal.

The Flying Eagles walked over Lesotho in Kaduna on Saturday after the Southern African country failed to show up for the final AYC qualifier first leg.

Lesotho had expressed concerns over the outbreak of Ebola virus disease in Nigeria.

The team will no longer break their training camp in Abuja until a final notice is received from CAF, according to team secretary Aliyu Auwal Ibrahim.

The team have therefore returned to Abuja from Kaduna, where Saturday’s match was to have been played.

CAF are expected to take a final decision on this match based on the reports of the match commissioner from Benin Republic and referees from Senegal, who were all in Kaduna.

The 2015 AYC will be staged by Senegal from March 8 with the top four teams winning berths to the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand.
