Nigeria's Dream Team VII has been drawn against Sudan in the final qualifying round for the Africa U -23 Cup of Nations in June.

The Nigerian U-23 side booked their place in the final round after a 4-0 victory at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba against Libya who had won the first leg by a 2-0 scoreline.

Their next opponent, Sudan, saw off Kenya 2-0 on aggregate after playing a goalless draw in Nairobi on Tuesday.

The first leg of the two-legged games will be played in Sudan on June 5 and the reverse fixture in Nigeria four days later.

The winner from the tie will book a place at the eight-team tournament in Egypt in November this year where the top three teams will represent the continent in the football event of 2020 Olympic Games.
