Eaglets off to Argentina
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have announced the Golden Eaglets will finally fly out for a pre-World Cup training camp in Argentina today after several delays.
“We have sorted all the logistics concerning the Eaglets training in Argentina and they will now leave on Thursday,” disclosed NFF general secretary Mohammed Sanusi.
The team of 25 players are expected to make the trip, which was previously delayed because of visa issues.
Nigeria are the defending U17 world champions and they are drawn in a first round group with hosts Chile, Croatia and United States of America.
They begin their title defence on October 17 against USA in Santiago.
