The Flying Eagles on Thursday departed the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja for Khartoum for the 2017 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifying match against Sudan.

The team had earlier been scheduled to depart Nigeria on Wednesday but that was put off following some “logistical problems”.

The team comprising 18 players and nine Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) officials departed Abuja on board an Ethiopian Airways flight at 12:00 noon.

Adewale Ajayi, the team’s media officer, said the delegation was being led by Ibrahim Gusau, chairman of Zamfara FA.

The team will tackle a Sudanese side that has yet to kick a ball in the qualifiers following the withdrawal of their second round opponent, Malawi.
