U17 AFCON: Golden Eaglets Opponents, Zambia Arrive Algeria


Ahead of the much anticipated U17 African Cup of Nations, the group opponents of Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets, Junior Chipolopolos of Zambia have arrived in Algeria.

The team head coach Ian Bakala a few days ago announced the final 24-man squad for the biennial age-grade competition.

Junior Chipolopolos have been in closed camping and will play their final friendly match against Senegal in Algeria before their opening game.

They stormed Algeria late on Friday and they are expected to commence their training and acclimatisation immediately.

Zambia will face Golden Eaglets of Nigeria on April 30th in the opening group match before facing Morocco and rival South Africa later in the competition.
