Nigeria U-17 Defender, Halilu Out Of South Africa Match

Nigeria Under-17 international defender, Zakari Lukman Halilu is suspended from Wednesday’s lass-four duel with South Africa having being cautioned twice in the group stages of the ongoing African Junior Championship (AJC) in Niger Republic.

Thus, Halilu is ruled out of the clash with the Amajimbos after receiving yellow cards in his side’s penultimate group match against Guinea and the win over Zambia at the weekend.

The Golden Eaglets are looking to scale South Africa’s cliff as they bid to win the African Under-17 Championship for a third time.

They are likely to face the winner of the other semi-final match between Mali and Guinea in Saturday’s final at the Stade Seyni Kountche.
