F/Eagles tackle Ikare United

Nigeria U-20 squad will continue their build-up to a 2015 AYC qualifier in Tanzania with another warm-up match against Ikare United of Ondo state today. The match will be played at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja from 7 am.

The Flying Eagles have been putting finishing touches to their AYC qualifier against Tanzania slated for the weekend of May 9 – 11. The return leg will be in Nigeria two weeks later.
Training has been fiercely competitive as all the players in the team squad have been doubling up so as to make the final cut for the trip to Tanzania.

In Monday evening training, Manchester City midfielder, Chidiebere Nwakali, needed four stitches around his mouth after he was elbowed to show how the intensity of the training has risen.
FC Porto youngster, Chidera Eze, has resumed fully with the squad after he nursed a hamstring injury soon on his arrival from his Portuguese base.

The Flying Eagles are due to depart Abuja for Lagos on Friday with a 20-man squad. They are billed to take on Benin Republic in Porto Novo on Sunday in another international warm-up before they jet out to Tanzania from Lagos.
