“We are delighted to be in Katsina and we want to thank Governor Maisari for this opportunity," said the former African Footballer of the Year. "Of course, we would love to stay here as long as we want but the most important thing for us is to prepare well for the World Cup."

The Golden Eaglets according to Amuneke, would from Monday begin their routine session  and would train twice daily in one of the newest facilities in the land - the recently opened Karkanda Stadium in Katsina.

“We don’t have time to waste and the hard work has truly begun because we have few days left to the World Cup.”
