The Flying Eagles of Nigeria will face Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire in Group B of the WAFU B Zonal qualifiers for the 2021 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations in Mauritania.

The WAFU B qualifying draw which was held on Tuesday will see Niger Republic, Benin Republic and Burkina Faso slug it out in Group A.

The competition will kick-off on November 14 to 29 2020 in Lome, Togo.
The top two teams (finalists) in other qualification zones will qualify for the main tournament in Mauritania.

The Flying Eagles are expected to start preparations for the WAFU B zonal qualification tournament this week in Abuja after the Federal Government lifted restrictions on contact sports late last weekend.

The 2021 U-20 AFCON in Mauritania will hold from February to March.

The Flying Eagles have won the U-20 AFCON title a record seven times and last won it in 2015.

At the 2019 edition in Niger Republic, the Nigerian side finished fourth.
