FIFA U-20 World Cup: Nigeria takes-on Senegal in round 16

The Nigeria flying Eagles

Nigeria will take on Senegal in the Round of 16 of the ongoing U-20 FIFA World Cup in Poland.

The Flying Eagles qualified as one of the best third-placed teams following a 1-1 draw with Ukraine in Bielsko-Biała on Thursday.

Paul Aigbogun’s boys will now face the Young Lions of Teranga, who finished as Group A winners for a chance to battle for a place in the quarter-finals.

The encounter holds on Monday at the Lodz Stadium, with the winner facing either Japan or South Korea in the last eight.

Youssouph Dabo’s Senegal were runners-up at the 2019 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations, where they bowed to champions Mali on penalties.

They are unbeaten in Poland so far, winning two games and getting a draw without conceding any goal.
