Sani Abacha, Sunusi to lead 5 foreign pros to Flying Eagles


Former Golden Eaglets captain Sani Abacha as well as U23 star Sunusi Ibrahim are among five foreign-based professionals who are expected to fortify the Flying Eagles in time for the U20 AFCON qualifiers in Togo later this month.

Defender or midfielder Abacha only recently signed his first pro contract with top Hungarian side Honved Budapest, while Sunusi is believed to be in England to finalise a transfer.

Sunusi, who clocked 18 on October 1, 2020, was joint top scorer of the NPFL two seasons ago and has already represented Nigeria at U23 and CHAN levels.
It was further gathered that three other attacking players from overseas will also be called up by coach Ladan Bosso.

NPFL stars dominate the current team, who have been training in Abuja ahead of the qualifiers in Togo later this month.
They open their campaign on November 19 against Cote d’Ivoire.
