The players who were dropped from the Nigeria U-17 team, have expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to attend the camp, despite failing to make the grade.
The quartet of Kingsley Michael, Okonkwo Orji, Chibuzor Ibekwe and Paul Obasi were let go by the coaching crew during the week.
Obasi and Ibekwe were magnanimous in praising the technical crew as well as praying for the overall success of the team in the days ahead.
” I want to thank you so much for the opportunity given to me”, said Obasi who was sourced from Invisible Leopards of Badagry.
” As a human being, I’m not happy but I know what you have done was in good faith and for the good of the team and I want to wish the team all the best in the future.
The four affected players in the meantime have since left the Golden Eaglets camp in CJ Planet International Hotel, Abuja.
