Tanzania have confirmed that a 2015 African Youth Championship second round, first leg qualifier against Nigeria’s Flying Eagles will be staged on Sunday.
In an official correspondence by the Tanzania Football Federation dated May 6 and signed by general secretary Mwesigwa Selestine, the host federation apologised for shifting the game by a day “due to reasons beyond our reach”.
The match will be played at the 60,000-capacity National Stadium in Dar es Salaam, which has a natural grass pitch.
Kick-off time is 4pm local time, which is 2pm Nigerian time as they are two hours ahead.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have before now been kept in the dark about the match details.
Tanzania eliminated neigbours Kenya on penalties to reach the second round, while six-time African champions Nigeria drew bye into the second round.
Meanwhile, it was cheering news in the Flying Eagles camp when the wife of team doctor Ozi Salami gave birth to a bouncing baby girl on Monday. It is the Salamis second daughter.
