Kaduna - Nigeria U20 team, the Flying Eagles, will begin playing test matches at their Kaduna training base from Thursday.

The team have been training in Kaduna for about a week now.

They will play a second game on Saturday morning against Standard FC of Zaria at the same venue.

Another series of training matches are fixed for next week.

Each half of the test match will last an hour and be played by different set of players as the Flying Eagles continue to scout for fresh talent to boost the squad of next year’s African Youth Championship in Senegal.

Training has been rigorous with hundreds of hopefuls trooping into the Ahmadu Bello Stadium on a daily basis.

In the meantime, the Flying Eagles will go on Christmas break from December 20 and resume in Kaduna a week later.

Foreign-based stars like Taiwo Awoniyi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Chidiebere Nwakali, Chidera Eze and Musa Yahaya are expected to join up with the squad thereafter.
