A good number of the Flying Eagles players coached by Emmanuel Amuneke who crashed out of the race to CAF U-20 AFCON billed for Zambia later this year, will be promoted to the Super Eagles, a competent NFF source has revealed to Completesportsnigeria.com.
"We shall include some of the players who have distinguished themselves in the team in some of the senior team's invitations as means of monitoring and developing them after they failed to reach the U-20 World Cup where they should have exhibited their talents," a Nigeria Football Federation source who spoke on condition of anonymity told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"The idea is to invite about three to five of the players to fight for places in the senior team and develop. We cannot allow such talents to vanish just like that. We shall help the players to fulfill their potential by giving them the chance to improve their game by training and playing with the Super Eagles."
Flying Eagles lost 4-3 at home to their Sudanese counterparts after winning the first leg 2-1 in Khartoum thereby crashing out based on the opponent's superior away goals.
