U-20 AFCON Qualifiers: Flying Eagles held to draw in Guinea Bissau

Nigeria's U20 team, the Flying Eagles, were on Saturday forced to a 2-2 draw by their Guinea Bissau counterparts in the first leg of a 2019 Africa U20 Cup of Nations first round qualifying fixture in Bissau.

The Flying Eagles are looking to stage a return to the U-20 AFCON after they failed to qualify for the last edition hosted by Zambia. Guinea defeated Sierra Leone in the first round to book a place against Nigeria. Israel-based goalkeeper Akpan Udoh is the only overseas-based player on the 20-man Flying Eagles squad.

Paul Aigbogun's men arrived Bissau late Thursday night after connecting a flight from Morocco and had a feel of the September 24 National Stadium on Friday evening.
