The Nigeria’s U20 team arrived in Lodz Saturday afternoon, ahead of tomorrow’s FIFA U20 World Cup Round of 16 clash with fellow African side Senegal on Monday.
Paul Aigbogun’s team left their Qubus Hotel in Bielsko-Biala after breakfast and arrived in Poland’s third largest city just in time for lunch at the Hotel Ambasador Premium.
Nigeria finished third in Group D and only qualified as one of the best fourth third –place finishers in the six groups, while Senegal, Africa’s vice champions, finished at the top of Group A after two wins and a draw.
The seven-time African champions are yet to truly impress in Poland since their opening day 4-0 lashing of Qatar.
Half of the Round of 16 fixtures are all-Confederation clashes. Apart from Nigeria/Senegal, South American representatives Uruguay and Ecuador are up against each other, as Asians Japan and South Korea, and European teams Italy and Poland.
The 18,000 –capacity Stadion Widzewa, where the Flying Eagles tackle Senegal from 7.30pm, will also host the final match on June 15.
