The Flying Eagles are billed to feature in this year’s U20 WAFU Cup in Togo, which kicks off on December 6, officials have said.
Already the Nigeria U20s have been seeded for the eight-team championship and will head one of the first round groups along with hosts Togo.
The other teams who will feature in the sub-regional competition are Burkina Faso, Niger, Cote d’Ivoire, Benin and Ghana.
Senegal have been handed a special invitation.
The final will be staged on December 16 in Lome.
The competition will serve as a dress rehearsal for next year’s U20 AFCON in Niger in February.
