Flying Eagles Off To Germany Saturday For Pre-World Cup Camping

Nigeria’s Flying Eagles are expected to fly out to Germany on Saturday to begin final preparations ahead of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland, Completesports.com reports.

Head coach of the team Paul Aigbogun, Completesports.com learnt, is also expected to release the names of players that will be part of the training camp on Saturday.

The players and their officials, all things being equal, will travel to Germany aboard Luthfansa Airline on Saturday night.

Captain of the side, Ikouwen Udoh, as well as Valentine Ozornwafor, Igor Ogbu, Adamu Alhassan, Yahaya Nazifi and a host of other regulars are expected to be named in the squad.

The Flying Eagles who finished fourth at the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations in Niger early this year will face the USA, Ukraine and Qatar in Group D of the competition.

Paul Aigbogun’s men will begin their campaign against Qatar on May 24 at the Stadion Miejski w Tychach, Tychy.

The West Africans twice finished second at the 1989 and 2005 editions hosted by Saudi Arabia and Netherlands respectively.

The biennial competition will be staged in six Polish cities; Lodz, Bielsko-Biala, Bydgoszcz, Gdynia, Lublin and Tychy from 23 May to 15 June 2019.

    There’s a Nigerian midfielder called miracle who plays in Latvia and has been contacted to join our under 20 this weekend in Germany.
    Apparently,he’s in the books of Sampdoria,Tottenham and a few others, he is that good and a few months ago was in one of the academies in Jos.
    I think despite criticism against Aigbogun he is going to excel because he’s not conservative with selection.I read in sports news he is reaching out to our best talents in Europe.
    Ironically the much maligned Aigbogun could be the first coach to lead us successfully to the under 20 world cup which I think we are overdue to be crowned champions.

      I m with u @greenturf. Even if he fails to win, I m so impressed with the way Aigbogun is trying to integrate foreign n local based players together for the u-20 world Cup. This is where Manu Garba is failing heavily. Somehow I m beginning to see why Manu is failing in this regard. Its seems he is got inferiority complex with regards to foreign born lads, for I heard him backing instructions, in yoruba language to his players. No foreign born Nigerian player, not even the one who is yoruba by origin will feel comfortable with that.

        Because Mumu is a bloody fool. He should be in Sambisa forest for a week or two to put common sense into his f**k*** head. His u17 team will go no where in Brazil. They hardly come out in their African Group.
        “All we are saying, Aigbogun, let our Samuel Chukwueze go oooo.”
