Flying Eagles begin training in Lagos

19 July 2016, 16:36Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Flying Eagles have begun training in at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos ahead of a fixture against Sudan.

The Nigeria’s U20 delegation landed at the domestic wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport around 10.30am on Monday for the final leg of their 2017 Africa U20 Cup of Nations qualifying fixture with Sudan, coming up at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Saturday.

A 35-man delegation comprising of 28 players and seven officials got their first taste of Lagos hospitality from the VIP reception after which they were cheered by some passengers at the airport lobby.

The team was later driven in a convoy to its hotel accommodation in Surulere, and had lunch before the first training session that lasted two hours at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

Coach Emmanuel Amuneke later addressed the players advising them to remain focused and dedicated to the task ahead.

He warned them not to be complacent against their visitors on Saturday, stressing that the fixture is not won until after the second leg has been played. 

News24 reported in April that Amuneke fielded eight members of the Chile 2015 U-17 World Cup winners as his boys ran away 4-1 winners over Sia-One Academy in a friendly match at the FIFA Goal Project, Abuja.
