Flying Eagles Camp Closes Today


Flying Eagles Coach John Obuh has ordered all 12 new invitees to report to the team’s training camp in Abuja latest today.

“We are building a new team almost from the scratch and as such we have to be very prompt in anything we are doing,” said Obuh.

“I therefore expect the new players I have called up to report to camp unfailingly today or forget being part of my team.”

The Nigeria U-20 team are due to feature in an invitational tournament in Cape Town, South Africa, from 24 May.

The Flying Eagles, who are the African U-20 champions, won the inaugural competition last year.
