Eaglets’ train hits Ilorin, Lagos



The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has lined-up series of friendly matches for the Golden Eaglets as the team continue its build-up towards the WAFU B U-17 Tournament in Togo.
The team will depart Abuja for Ilorin tomorrow and are billed to play Kwara Football Academy on Sunday at the Ilorin Township Stadium.

They will later proceed to Lagos to face Pepsi Football Academy on Tuesday at the Agege Stadium before departing for Lome for the sub-regional competition.
Head coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, said the series of matches ahead of the tournament would naturally toughen the players since some of them are gradually adjusting to the demand of playing for the national team.
“We appreciate the organisation of these matches by the NFF since it would help the players to be mentally strong and tactically disciplined,” he stated.
