By James Agberebi:
Nigeria's national U-23 side Dream Team VI, have been drawn in a very tough group in the men's football event of the 11th All Africa Games to be staged in Brazzaville, Congo.

The Dream Team VI who were drawn in group B, will square up against Ghana, Egypt and Senegal.

In group A, host Congo, will slug it out with the likes of Zimbabwe, Sudan, Zimbabwe and Burkina Faso.

At the 2003 All Africa Games in Abuja, the Dream Team defeated both Senegal (group stage 3-0) and Ghana (semi-final 3-0) before losing 2-0 to Cameroon in the final.

The team failed to qualify for the 2007 and 2011 editions in Algiers and Mozambique respectively.

In the women's draw that also took place, the Super Falcons were drawn in group A with Congo, Tanzania and Cote d'Ivoire. While group B will see Cameroon, South Africa, Ghana and Egypt face each other.
