The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has charged the Nigeria U-20 team, Flying Eagles, to do the nation proud on-and-off the field at the U-20 World Cup, which begins in Poland on Thursday.
Pinnick, in company with NFF general secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, arrived at the Flying Eagles’ The Monarch Hotel camp in Bad Goegging, Germany on Friday morning, ahead of the team’s departure for the World Cup on Sunday. The duo later joined the team at training.
On Friday, the Flying Eagles engaged Red Bull Leipzig of Germany in their final pre-World Cup friendly, three days after their 1-1 draw with Red Bull Salzburg in another friendly in Austria.
The Flying Eagles delegation will fly from Germany to Tychy on Sunday. They will take on Qatar in their first match of the U-20 World Cup on May 24, before other Group D games against USA (May 27) and Ukraine (May 30).
