Match Preview

A place at the U-20 World Cup in Indonesia later in the year beckons as Nigeria’s flying Eagles test their horns against their East African counterpart Uganda.

The stage is set in the quarterfinal of the CAF U-20 Nations Cup in Egypt with Nigeria looking to have a slight edge going into this encounter.

Although Nigeria’s young guns must prove they deserve the World Cup ticket by overcoming the young Cranes of Uganda in this contest.

It would be noteworthy that both sides are meeting for the first time at this level. And it promises to be interesting who will clinch the win and make history in the process as well.

With much to fight for, a thrilling contest is expected between the flying Eagles and their Ugandan opposition at the Suez Canal Stadium in Ismailia on Thursday.

Uganda finished top of Group B thanks to draws against modest sides like Congo and South Sudan.

While they picked up the maximum three points against the less fancied (CAR) Central Africa Republic.

The current Uganda U-20 squad looks more technical than the previous team in 2021 (when they made their debut at this level).

And they have only lost once since 2022 in a competitive game. But Nigeria’s reputation at this stage could pose a big task to Uganda’s hope of advancement in this one.

Nigeria is the most successful team at the U-20 level with seven titles, and they would look to make this edition the 8th title hoping they get the better of their counterpart in this tie.

Ladan Bosso’s team leaves to fight till the end despite losing 0-1 to fellow West African giants and rival Senegal in the opening match before securing vital wins against host Egypt and Mozambique to qualify for this stage.

And with respect to CAF, the Flying Eagles of Nigeria have shown they merit the true accolade for good sportsmanship after being adjured as the winner of the Group stage fair play Award.
