Guinea Bissau players and officials arrived in Nigeria on Wednesday night ahead of their return leg 2019 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifier against the Flying Eagles at the U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar on Saturday.
Seven-time African champions Nigeria were forced to a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Bissau last weekend, with Enyimba’s Wasiu Alalade netting a first-half brace before the hosts levelled in the second period.
The visitors are expected to hit the Cross River State capital on Friday, while match officials from Togo are scheduled to be in Nigeria on Friday morning.
CAF has appointed Kouassi Attisso Attiogbe as referee, alongside his compatriots Limsa Kabassima (Assistant Referee 1), Adam Moukaila Biyao (Assistant Referee 2) and Kokou Hougnimon Fagla (Reserve Referee).
Andy Quame from Liberia will serve as the match commissioner.
