Nigeria’s Falconets have reached the final round of the U-20 World Cup qualifiers after seeing off Tanzania 2-1 over the weekend.
Nigeria, who have never missed any edition of the competition, will take on Burundi in the final qualification game for a place in next year’s World Cup billed for Colombia.
The Nigerian side had drawn the first leg of the encounter 1-1 in Dar es Salaam last Sunday.
The Falconets ended their 2022 U-20 World Cup campaign at the quarter-final stage.
