“This will be the first time I will be playing for the team after I featured for the Super Eagles against Corsica and CHAN team in Kano against Benin.

“I have been waiting for this opportunity and I’m glad because I’m now with the team. All I’m thinking about now is a glorious outing in Omdurman.”

The return leg will take place next week Tuesday at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.

The overall winner of the contest will proceed to the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations slated for Egypt in November.
