Flying Eagles step up preparations



GarbaThe Flying Eagles will step up their preparations for next month’s AYC qualifier with a test game against Nigeria National League (NNL) side, Supreme Court of Abuja, this morning.
The match will be played at the Area A Sports Ground in Abuja and will kick off at 7 am.

“Supreme Court will give us a good match as they are very much in the thick of action in the Nigeria National League,” said Flying Eagles’ co-ordinator Sulaiman Abubakar.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) also plans another international friendly for the team after the matches in Morocco before the AYC first leg qualifier either in Kenya or Tanzania.
Director of competitions, Mohammed Sanusi, restated the need for the team to be better prepared when he watched the team’s training.

The Flying Eagles trained on yesterday morning at the Abuja National Stadium Practice pitch.
Meanwhile, Denis Okon Nya, who featured at last year’s FIFA U-17 World Cup Finals in Abu Dhabi, will join the rest of the squad this week after he underwent trials at Austrian club, Red Bull Salzsburg, recently.
The left back trained briefly with the squad before he jetted out to Austria.
