The Nigeria U20 team are expected to depart for Morocco aboard Air Maroc on Wednesday morning for the 12th All Africa Games.

“We are conscious of the expectation of Nigerians on the team,” Aigbogun told Completesports.com.

“We’ve worked hard in training and the boys are determined too. We have no reason not to deliver.

“It is going to be a collective effort, in which case we expect Nigerians to as usual stand behind us with their support”.

The Flying Eagles are in the same Group A with hosts Morocco, as well as Burkina Faso and South Africa.
