FIFA says the final squad list of players for the 2019 FIFA Under-20 World Cup is complete with eight days before the kick-off.
A statement issued by the FIFA Media Office said that 504 players would be representing the 24 teams to follow in the footsteps of global stars like Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba who were first discovered at the U-20 World Cup.
Nigeria’s National U-20 team; Flying Eagles, are among the players to compete for honours at the tournament.
They have been drawn in Group D with Qatar, Ukraine and USA in the tournament scheduled to hold from May 23 to June 15.
FIFA Deputy Secretary General (Football) Zvonimir Boban, who won the event in its former guise as the FIFA World Youth Championship with Yugoslavia in 1987 , said Chile 1987 marked his career and was optimistic Poland 2019 would do the same for the players.
