Konate would be assisted by his compatriots Mamady Tere (assistant referee 1), Abdoulaye Sylla (assistant referee 2) and Tawel Younoussa Camara (fourth official), while Luleseged Begashaw Asfaw from Ethiopia will be the Match Commissioner. Meanwhile, Cup holders Nigeria has all to play for to earn a slot in the finals of the U23 Africa Cup of Nations holding in Egypt in November as they take the pitch at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba. A goal, seconds to the end of the first half in Omdurman on Thursday, left the Olympic Eagles nursing a deficit. The Olympic Eagles have been training in Asaba since arriving in the Delta State capital on Sunday, and have been strengthened by the arrival of former FIFA U17 World Cup-winning captain Kelechi Nwakali. Nwakali will string things in midfield with captain Azubuike Okechukwu, with Blessing Muyiwa, Sunusi Ibrahim, Stephen Odey and Taiwo Awoniyi expected to do a better job of putting away opportunities this time. Goalkeeper Adamu Abubakar pulled a number of huge saves in Omdurman and is expected to start, with former U17 World Cup winner John Lazarus and Ebube Duru at wing back. As they file onto the pitch, Amapakabo’s charges will recall that it was on the same turf they hit Libya by four goals to nothing in the earlier round, after a two-goal reverse in Tunisia.Tags: Bangly KonatecafMamady TereSudanU23 AFCONlast_img read more
