Abuja - Flying Eagles coach Manu Garba will name a provisional squad of 35 players ahead of a 2015 African Youth Championship qualifier in May.
Competition has been fierce as over 55 players have been slugging it out daily for a spot in the team.
They include the players picked from a recent open screening and the 20 players from the U-17 World Cup-winning squad from last year.
“The level has been encouraging and we should expect a few surprises in the final squad,” said coach Manu.
The Flying Eagles are to break camp on Tuesday and regroup on Sunday after a short recess.
They will battle the winners of next month’s match between Kenya and Tanzania in the second week of May.
They will play the first leg away from home.
Senegal will stage the 2015 AYC in March, while the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup will be hosted by New Zealand.
