The two wins was enough for the team to top Group A while Morocco came second, however, Libya failed to show up for the tournament, leaving the group with three countries.
The Futures Eagles will face either Cameroon or the hosts Algeria depending who comes second in group B.
The Cameroon’s U-15 national team need a draw while Algeria needs to win the match for either team to be at the top of group B table.
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s under-15 national team, Future Eagles’ top scorer, Divine Nwachukwu is talk of the town at the ongoing African Youth Games (AYG 2018) in Algiers, Algeria, following his rain of five goals in just two matches.
Before now, precisely in December 2017, Nwachukwu represented South East Zone at the NFF/Zenith U-15 Football Championship and was named most valuable player of the competition.
He also won the Golden Boot award, after scoring six goals in the contest, from which he was spotted to star for Nigeria in the AYG, where he is donning jersey No.15 for the Future Eagles.
He was again on fire this past Saturday, as the Eagles hit Djibouti 5-0 in their second match in Algeria, with Nwachukwu bagging a hat trick while Chidera Ejiofor and Mohammed Ibrahim scored one each.
