Nigeria’s Dream Team VI yesterday held their own to deny hosts Junior Red Devils of Congo from scoring, picking a precious ticket to Senegal for the African-U23 Championship.

The Junior Red Devils who were led by veteran Claude Leroy needed only a goal to sail through but Samson Siasia’s boys ran away without conceding a goal in Pointe Noire. The goalless draw saw Nigeria winning 2-1 on aggregate.

They will now join the other teams that have qualified in the eight-team tournament that will

take place in December in order to find Africa’s three representatives at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Algeria, Egypt, South Africa, Tunisia and Zambia had already qualified to join hosts Senegal before Sunday and Nigeria joined while the winner was being awaited between Mali and Gabon as at press time.
