Nigeria: Golden Eaglets Begin Camping in Abuja for Brazil 2019

14 August 2019

Nigeria's Golden Eaglets on Tuesday in Abuja began their camping programme for the FIFA Under-17 World Cup finals holding in Brazil from Oct. 26 to Nov. 17.

The five-times champions had picked a ticket to the competition after finishing among the top four teams at the Africa Under-17 Cup of Nations in Tanzania in April.

"Head Coach Manu Garba has called up 52 players who were expected to arrive in Abuja on Tuesday (Aug. 13)," Ademola Olajire, the Director of Communications at Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), announced in a statement on Tuesday.

Garba was head coach of the Nigerian squad which won Nigeria's fourth title in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2013.

The Golden Eaglets also triumphed at the 1985, 1993, 2007 and 2015 championships in China, Japan, Korea Republic and Chile respectively.
