Spanish La Liga club, Granada, are yet to confirm when they will release striker Isaac Success for a training camp ahead of next month’s AYC qualifiers.
“We are still awaiting a confirmation from Granada for the player,” said team secretary, Aliyu Auwal Ibrahim.
Also, there has been no feedback on the availability of goalkeeper, Dele Alampasu, who has been on trials at Belgian club, Genk.
Unconfirmed reports had suggested the Abuja College’s goalkeeper may have suffered a long-term injury while on trials in Belgium.
The Flying Eagles rounded up their training for today’s friendly against their Moroccan counterparts.
Set plays were emphasised during the one and a half hour workout on a warm and sunny day.
Ifeanyi Matthew, Musa Yahaya and Alhassan Ibrahim a.k.a ‘Mu-azam’ proved to be troublesome free kick specialists as they bent their kicks past goalkeeper Emeka Nwabulu.
‘Mu-azam’ won a $100 bet with assistant coach Nduka Ugbade, when he curled his effort round a packed defensive wall for his second goal in the interesting exercise.
Morocco U-20s will line up a wholly home-based side with several players from last year’s African U-17 team, same as the current Flying Eagles.
The Flying Eagles will depart their training base outside Casablanca immediately after breakfast today for Rabat, where the match will be played.
The match will kick off at 4 pm local time, which is same time with Nigeria.
