Nigeria/Guinea: African U-17 Qualifier - Guinea Storms Nigeria Friday

A 25-man delegation of the U-17 National Team of Guinea will arrive in Lagos on Friday morning, for Sunday's 2013 African U-17 Championship qualifying match against Nigeria's Golden Eaglets.

The contingent will fly into Lagos aboard an Arik Air flight and be flown into Calabar the same day, also aboard an Arik Air flight.

Sunday's match at the U. J. Esuene Stadium, Calabar is the first leg of a second round fixture in the race for qualification for next year's continental finals in Morocco.

To reach this stage, the Golden Eaglets dismissed their Niger counterparts 10-1 on aggregate, winning 4-1 in Niamey and 6-0 in Calabar. The Guineans drew a bye to this stage.
