Golden Eaglets resume camping for Japan tourney

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have announced the country’s U-17 team, the Golden Eaglets, will resume training ahead of the AFCON championship in Tanzania  on Saturday.

The Eaglets will also feature in an invitational tournament in Japan as part of their build-up for the AFCON in Tanzania.

The U-17s led by coach Manu Garba qualified for the U-17 AFCON when they topped the zonal qualifiers in Niger last year.

They are drawn against hosts Tanzania, Angola and Uganda in the U17 AFCON, which will kick off on April 14.

The tournament will produce four teams for the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Peru later this year.
