The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has picked Saturday, 6th August and the National Stadium, Abuja to host this weekend's CAF U-17 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match between the Golden Eaglets and Junior Menas of Niger Republic.

 Nigeria’s Eaglets, who won a record fifth FIFA U-17 World Cup trophy in Chile last year, were drawn bye into the second round by CAF in the race towards Madagascar 2017 and will now start their quest against their familiar foes in the Junior Menas.

 Last year, the Eaglets came fourth at the continental cadet championship hosted by Niger Republic, where they inflicted a 2-0 defeat on the Junior Menas in front of their fans at the Stade Général Seyni Kountché in Niamey.

 Incidentally, Saturday's match will be the fourth encounter between both sides in the last four years with the Golden Eaglets also claiming a 10-1 aggregate win in the qualifiers for the 2013 Africa U-17 Cup of Nations hosted by Morocco.

 Meanwhile, ahead of Saturday's qualifier, the Golden Eaglets will on Wednesday tackle Piloter Football Academy of Kaduna at the National Stadium, Abuja in what will be their seventh friendly match against local teams.
