Eagle Global Association in conjunction with Association of Proprietors of Football Academies of Nigeria, APFAN, will next month begin screening of players who fall within the ages of 17-25 years.
The open screening will start at the mainbowl of the National Stadium, Lagos. The registration commenced last month and over 50 players have shown interest in the screening.
The Public Relations Officer of APFAN, Coach Kamilu Banjo, told GSG that the screening is organised to select good players for training tours in Europe, North America and Asia.
â€œIt is an opportunity for young players who want to start their football career in Europe or America. We want to get at least 1,000 players before we close the registration. We are happy that many players have paid their registration fees for the screening exercise,â€ he said
According to Banjo, interested players should pay N2, 500 to First Bank and return the bank tellers to him.
