The Paul Aigbogun tutored Flying Eagles qualified for the finals of the U20 World Cup after defeating hard fighting host team Niger Republic 1-0 to also sail through to the semi-finals of the ongoing U20 Africa Cup of Nations holding in Niger Republic.
Enterprising Ibrahim Alhazan made the difference via set piece.
South Africa also spanked Burundi 1-0 to book their ticket for the U- 20 World Cup holding in Poland.

It was all to play for the two sides, and Amajita (South Africa) were given a penalty inside seven minutes following an indiscretion on Thabiso Monyane.

SuperSport United’s Luke Le Roux comfortably slotted home the spot-kick away, giving their opposite number no chance on nine minutes.
