AYC qualifiers: Flying Eagles face Lesotho after Tanzania demolition

Share This

By Albert Akota

The Flying Eagles will take on Lesotho in the third and final round of the 2015 African Youth Championship (AYC) qualifiers in August after the southern Africans eliminated Angola.

Lesotho completed the double over Angola on Sunday in Luanda when they beat the home team 1-0 to go through to the next round on a 4-1 aggregate.

Lesotho had won the home first leg game in Maseru two weeks earlier 3-1.

The Flying Eagles had earlier last week in Kaduna beaten Tanzania 4-1 for a 6-1 aggregate to qualify for the final round of the qualifiers.

The Flying Eagles will now host Lesotho on Aug. 16, while the return leg will hold a fortnight later.

The overall winners will advance to the 2015 AYC to be hosted by Senegal in March.

Lesotho made their AYC debut at the 2005 tournament staged by Benin Republic.

They lost 0-2 to Morocco, upset Angola 1-0 before they crumbled 1-4 to Egypt.

Lesotho recorded only a point at the 2011 AYC, which the Flying Eagles won in South Africa.

They lost 0-2 to Egypt, 1-2 to hosts South Africa, before they forced Mali to a 1-1 draw to finish bottom of their first round group.
