Top NFF official, Emmanuel Ikpeme, disclosed that besides the Saudi Arabia tune-up match, the U20s  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 week  was cancelled following the civil unrest in that country.
