They had home and away victories over the Democratic Republic of Congo and Egypt in the previous round for a 6-0 aggregate, and had earlier defeated DR Congo 8-0 on aggregate .

Now they have a final hurdle to negotiate against a team that sensationally sent South Africa’s Bantwana packing with a 3-0 win in Johannesburg.

Friday’s match will hold at the Abebe Bekila Stadium in Addis Ababa, starting from 4 p.m. Ethiopia time (2 p.m. Nigeria time) and will be handled by Namibian officials.

NAN reports that the return leg is already scheduled for the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on June 4.
