U20 AFCON: African Football Expert Highlights One Major Advantage Flying Eagles Have Over Mali
African Football expert and Canal+ pundit, Diomansy Kamara has shared his thoughts on Wednesday's  2019 Africa U20 Cup of Nations semifinal showdown between Nigeria and Mali in Niamey.

The former Portsmouth, Leicester City, West Brom and Fulham striker believes the physicality of the Flying Eagles players could have an effect on the outcome of the match.

''Nigeria is a very physical team, I saw them play in all three games. This is a team that is not necessarily comfortable technically but who depend on their size,'' said Kamara to Foot Mali.

''It is good Mali qualified after losing to Senegal. I think this squad from Mali needs to be further improved.

''We have seen that it is not necessarily all the best players of Mali in this team. I am thinking in particular of the foreign-based Abdoul Salam Ag Jiddou (Monaco) and Cheick Oumar Doucoure (Lens).''

Nigeria will reach a record-extending tenth U20 AFCON final if they see off Mali at the Stade Général Seyni Kountché.
