In continuation of their preparations ahead of the WAFU B Tournament in Togo, the Golden Eaglets will file out against youngsters from Abuja
Football College at the NFF/ FIFA Goal Project Pitch today at 4:00 pm.
It would be Golden Eaglets’ second test game, coming on the heel of their 6 – 0 win against the Women’s National Team, the Super Falcons last Saturday.
Meanwhile, the budding Golden Eaglets have been told for the umpteenth time that only merit would guarantee them a place in the national U-17 team.
“We are not under any obligation to keep any player that would not be useful to us. The reason why we picked you amongst thousands of others was because we believe in you but it is now left for you to convince us that you can do the job,” he warned.
The former Nigerian international impressed it upon the players the enormous task ahead of them, adding that they must take routine training sessions and friendly matches seriously.
