Coach Paul Aigbogun of Nigeria

As part of its preparations for the 2019 African Youth Championship Qualifiers, The Flying Eagles of Nigeria earlier today held their Egyptian counterparts to a goalless draw in the first installment of a two part friendly in Alexandria.

Captained by Enyimba defender Ikouwem Udoh, the Flying Eagles did put up a decent shift to avoid defeat in the matchup.

Coach Paul Aigbogun will be hoping for a more improved performance when his team files out against their hosts on Wednesday.

In the qualifiers proper, the Flying Eagles will play the winner of Sierra Leone and Guinea Bissau in the second round later in May, 2018 while the Young Pharaohs will square up against the Junior Lions of Senegal for a place in the final qualifying campaign.
