FLYING EAGLES MAY OUST HOSTS, MOROCCO FROM AFRICAN GAMES TODAY

BY KUNLE SOLAJA

Nigeria’s football team at the African Games in Rabat, the Flying Eagles, need just a draw to get to the medal zone of the Games holding in Rabat, Morocco.

But it may not be a mere stroll in the park for the team as they have their battered hosts, Morocco to face this Friday to advance to the semifinals.

Morocco suffered a major blow in the Match Day 2 when they were beaten 2-0 by Burkina Faso. The loss has put in jeopardy, their advancement in the series.

Only a win over Nigeria can see them through, as the other match of the day will have just little impact.

Burkina Faso will be facing an already eliminated South Africa with the West Africans having a foot in the semi-finals.

Only a loss by three goals to South Africa and a drawn Nigeria versus Morocco tie can upstage Burkina Faso.
