After training for about a week, the Flying Eagles who are currently training in Kaduna will have a feel of a real match situation as a series of practice games have been lined up for the team.
The Flying Eagles will face Jamba Academy by 7am on Thursday in Kaduna while the friendly against Standard FC of Zaria has been scheduled for Saturday morning in Kaduna.
The Manu Garba-led side will get more test games next week.
It has been agreed by the technical crew of the team that each half of the friendlies will last for an hour and each half will be played by different set of players as the Flying Eagles continue to scout for fresh talent to boost the squad for next year’s African Youth Championship in Senegal.
Training has been rigorous with hundreds of hopefuls trooping into the Ahmadu Bello Stadium on a daily basis.
In the meantime, the Flying Eagles will go on Christmas break from December 20 and resume in Kaduna a week later.
Foreign-based stars like Taiwo Awoniyi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Chidiebere Nwakali, Chidera Eze and Musa Yahaya are expected to join up with the squad thereafter.
