    This list of players for the under 20 Nigeria’s flying eagles team can be said to be a good one in the sense that it would expose these players who ply their trade at home in the Nigeria professional football league. However away from sentiments, it is important we invite young professional Nigerian footballers abroad to join this players at home for the U 20 tournaments for both Africa and the World Cup. This will add more bite to the team and create more confidence as this players would bring more to the table. The NFF should scout for players and convince them where possible to join the U20 team and not only doing that at the senior level so that Nigeria would not be struggling to get a players nod who had already featured for another country at youth level to switch allegiance and play for the super eagles.

      Excellent point there.

      There are a lot of Nigerian players within that age bracket that are scattered all over Europe and this is the right time to invite them into the Flying Eagles as against squeezing them into the Super Eagles.
      Manu Garba should do same for the Golden Eaglets.
