Lagos - The Nigeria U17 boys' football team, otherwise known as the Golden Eaglets, will camp in Argentina ahead of the FIFA U17 World Cup to be held in Chile.

"We concluded plans to take them on a training tour of Argentina," deputy General Secretary of the NFF, Emmanuel Ikpeme told Hot FM.

"The federation has finalised arrangements for them to have a training tour of Argentina and the federation feels that we should have a training tour in a place that has a similar weather condition (to Chile).

"Of course this is a South American country, and basically they have a similar weather and this might be for three weeks before they leave for Chile for the competition," Ikpeme revealed.

Nigeria won the last edition of the U17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates in 2013, and are the defending champions.

They qualified for this edition with a fourth place finish at the African U17 championship that held earlier in the year, in Niger Republic.
