AYC Qualifier: Nigeria vs Mali

The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria will take on war-turned Mali in an African Youth Championship qualifier at the UJ Esuene stadium in Calabar. The under 17 tournament will be hosted by Morocco in 2013. Nigeria have only conceded a goal in four qualifiers and they've scored 17 goals from the same number of games.

The match will be played on Sunday at 2pm. The kick off time was brought forward by two hours to accommodate the travel plans of the junior Eagles of Mali.
The return leg will be played in the weekend of 30th November-2nd December 2012.
Nigeria has won the under 17 FIFA World Youth Championship on three occasions.
