Nigeria’s U23s play for pride

Nigeria’s U-23 side have settled into their Palmeraie Golf Palace, camp, Marrakech and will now play for pride against Algeria in the last group game on Friday.

Players of the Nigerian side where seen in groups discussing the chances of the country to make the semifinals following its defeat to Senegal in Tangier.

“You will see a different team on Friday. We may have an outside chance of qualification but we will fight for the pride of our country, play with our blood and leave the rest to fate,” Austin Eguavoen said.

Group A, remains mathematically open as all four countries, Morocco, Algeria, Senegal and Nigeria stand a chance to make the last four of the championship.

Despite having six points, Morocco risk losing out of a semi final spot should they lose 2-0 to Senegal and Algeria beat Nigeria by alone goal.

Nigeria however would make the last four, if they beat Algeria by at least two unreplied goals while Senegal lose to Morocco by a lone goal.

Both matches would be played simultaneously at 19hr GMT 8pm Nigeria time in Tangier and Marrakech.
