The tournament organisers specially informed AfricanFootball.com of Nigeria’s participation in the 44th edition, which will be played from May 18 to 29.

This will be the second time Nigeria will feature at the Toulon Football Festival, which was founded in 1967.

The Flying Eagles played in the 2013 edition on their way to the U20 World Cup in Turkey.

This year’s tournament will be used by countries to prepare for the Rio Olympics in August.

Some of the qualifiers for the Olympics have already confirmed their participation at the Toulon tourney.
