The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has picked the UJ Eusene Stadium in Calabar, located in Cross River State Nigeria as the city to host Nigeria U-20s return leg tie against Burundi.

A solitary goal from Chukwudi Agor gave the Nigerian lads made up of most of the players who won the last U-17 World Youth Championship in Chile a 1-0 victory in Bujumbura, a scoreline they will now have to defend in Calabar in a fortnight.

Owngoalnigeria.com gathered the team will leave Burundi tomorrow enroute Ethiopia where they will sleep over before continuing their journey to Nigeria.

They are expected to arrive Nigeria on Monday evening and training for the return leg will commence the next day at the FIFA goal project before they will proceed to Calabar, four days to the tie against Burundi.
