Nigeria’s Flying Eagles will fly out to Germany on Wednesday for a final training camp prior to the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.
NFF General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, confirmed that a team of 30 players and 10 officials will depart for Germany aboard a Lufthansa Airlines flight from Abuja on Wednesday.
“The boys will arrive in Germany on Thursday, April 30, and be able to train for 22 days, before flying to New Zealand on May 23,” he disclosed.
“The present NFF administration is fully committed to providing the best of preparations for any of our national teams ahead of major international matches or championships.”
The reigning champions of Africa are expected to arrive at their base in New Plymouth, New Zealand, on April 25, ahead of their first match of the tournament against Brazil on June 1.
Nigeria, beaten finalists in 1989 and 2005, will also play North Korea and Hungary in Group E of the three- week, 24-nation tournament.
