They later embarked on an eight-day training tour in Abidjan, losing 3-1 to Asec Mimosas U16 and later defeating Eleven Sisters 4-0 on Monday at the Sol Beni Stadium.

Nigeria will lodge at Elmina Beach Resort in Cape Coast and will be looking to replicate the superb form to claim their third title in a row.
