Former member of the technical committee of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Godwin Dudu-Orumen has advised the coaching crew of Nigeria’s U-17 female team, the Flamingoes, led by Peter Devdebo to pick players from school sports instead of searching for professional players.
Dudu-Orumen said only school girls can play in the U-17 female team.
“I don’t expect to see any professional player in the U-17 national team. We have a lot of talents in our schools and I expect the coaches handling the team to scout for players in these schools and football academies spread across the country,” he said.
The Flamingoes will keep a date with Zambia in the second round match of the FIFA U-17 World Cup qualifier slated for Saturday in Lusaka, Zambia.
