Flying Eagles coach drops two players

05 May 2014, 17:22Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Flying Eagles coach, Manu Garba has dropped two players from the squad for this weekend’s 2015 African Youth Championship qualifier in Tanzania, and warned that any one who fails to prove himself will be shipped out.

The Nigeria U20s lost 1-0 to hosts Benin Republic in a warm-up game played in Cotonou.

“You have to prove yourself by our next game or you go home,” said a tough-talking Manu on Monday.

“Sunday’s game in Cotonou is now in the past. We have seen some of our lapses and we will correct them before the qualifier in Tanzania. We remain positive and so we wish to win in Tanzania so that the return leg will be a mere formality.”

The Flying Eagles returned to Lagos Monday morning and are due to fly out to Tanzania on Wednesday afternoon.
Two players, goalkeeper Abdulazeez Abubakar and defender Ifeanyi Nweke were dropped from the 20-man squad to Benin and so 18 players will fly out to East Africa.
