Nigeria vs. Gambia; Match Preview as Semi-Final place beckons at CAF U-20 Africa Cup Of Nations


Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Nigeria would trade tackles with the Gambia U-20 side for a place in the Semi-final of the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations.

And it promises to be interesting based on how the game would play out between both sides over the course of 90 minutes.

Nigeria would be a slight favourite coming into this contest after holding a high record at this level. The flying Eagles have worn several titles at the U-20 level, seven titles to be precise.

While they’ve played in the U-20 World Cup final twice with the most recent one, the Samson Siasia-led side in the 2005 edition that saw the likes of John Obi Mikel (then Lyn Oslo) and Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona) taking centre stage.

Not forgetting the left-back Taye Taiwo and the long-range goals he scored with his powerful shots.

But Gambia though they are one of the smallest teams in Africa and are going to square off against the more populated Nigeria, should not be underrated.

They’ve been one of the best sides in Egypt this time around. And Ladan Bosso and his troops must trade with caution if they really want to get a chance to meet Senegal to claim possible revenge in the final.

And making it eighth titles should not be a dream too much for the flying Eagles playing in the final.

But they would have to crack the already existing nut in front of them in their counterpart Gambia as the match beckons on Monday Evening in Egypt.
