Sand Eagles tackle Seychelles, Egypt, Cote d’Ivoire in tourney

Nigeria’s Super Sand Eagles will play hosts Seychelles, Egypt and Cote d’Ivoire in Group A of the 2015 African Beach Soccer Championship.

The competition which is scheduled for April 14 to 19 will see Ghana, Morocco, Senegal and Madagascar play in Group B.

Nigeria will play the host nation in the opening match of the tournament before meeting Cote d’Ivoire and Egypt in the other group games.

Supersand Eagles finished third at the Power Horse Invitational Tournament in Durban in March where they beat Ghana and South Africa but lost to Senegal.

They qualified for the African championship finals after Libya withdrew from the race.

The Sand Eagles are currently camped in Badagry and will depart for Seychelles on Friday.
