No flight for Eaglets

No flight for Eaglets

The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria are still stranded in Abuja despite the move to relocate the team to Sokoto for the return leg of the African Youth Championship qualifier.

The team was expected to fine-tune and acclimatize for the return leg in Niamey.

One of the other reasons for choosing Sokoto was for state government to bankroll the expenses to Niger as sources said the NFF was broke.

The team, according to our source, will depart by road from Sokoto which shares border with Niger.

Inside source in the team said the boys were not happy with the arrangement which was contrary to the initial plans.

Instead of the earlier arrangement after the match, another round of warm up ties have been lined up for the team in Abuja.

The team yesterday evening engaged a selected side from Nasarawa State to keep in form.

“Even the 1-0 victory over Niger in the first leg was not rewarded with a dime,” our source revealed.
