The Golden Eaglets have been given a set of internal code of conduct in order to enhance team discipline on and off the field.
This was made known by the Nigeria Football Federation on their official website.
According to the team’s Coordinator, Prince Udofia, discipline is sacrosanct, adding that there are sanctions already put in place for any erring player or official.
“The technical crew in line with the Nigeria Football Federation directives, would not condone any indiscipline conduct. And the players have been told in clear terms that discipline is not negotiable,” Udofia said.
Udofia explained further that players and officials were already conversant with the camp rules as well as punishment attached to specific offences.
The Eaglets have settled down at their pre-tournament close camp upon arrival in Katsina at the weekend.
The players began routine training on Monday at the Karkanda Stadium in Katsina with much of the morning session geared towards players’ conditioning and physical fitness.
Meanwhile, head coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, has tasked his players to get down to serious business.
“We are here for business and you must be ready to do your best and conduct yourselves because only 21 players would eventually be picked for the World Cup in Chile,” he said.
