Nigeria U20s were all smiles ahead of their clash with Qatar in the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup in Poland.
The Flying Eagles, seven-time champions of the African continent, have finished as runners-up at the FIFA World Cup on two occasions – 1989 and 1995 – and took the bronze medals in the former Soviet Union 34 years ago.
Nigeria’s last appearance at the FIFA U20 World Cup was in New Zealand four years ago, where Coach Manu Garba’s wards were eliminated in the Round of 16 by Germany in Christchurch.
The Flying Eagles play Qatar, the United States of America and Ukraine in that order at the championship in Poland, with their first game against Qatar in Tychy on 24th May.
Ikouwem Utin, Igoh Ogbu, Valentine Ozornwafor, Nnamdi Ofoborh, Kingsley Michael, Ayotomiwa Dele-Bashiru and Success Makanjuola shone in Tuesday’s training session.
The above mentioned players are plying their trade at Manchester City, Bournemouth, Rosenborg, Perugia, Enyimba and Water FC.
