Nigeriaâ€™s Under-20 team, the Flying Eagles, will test their readiness for next monthâ€™s African YouthÂ Championship with a friendly against their Saudi Arabia counterparts in Dubai.
Top NFF official, Emmanuel Ikpeme, disclosed that besides the Saudi Arabia tune-up match, the U20sÂ will also take on AYC hosts Libya this weekend in a two-match contest.
The Libya match was scheduled after the game against the Egypt Under-20 team also slated for this weekÂ was cancelled following the civil unrest in that country.
Nigeria will finalise their build-up for the African Championship with a training camp in turkey.
The Flying Eagles, who have won the AYC a record five times, are drawn in Group B of this yearâ€™sÂ tournament along with world champions Ghana, Cameroon and The Gambia.
