A member of the NFF Task Force for age-group national teams, Adam Muktar Mohammed, has demanded for adequate preparations for the Flying Eagles ahead of the U20 AFCON in Egypt next year.
The U20 AFCON will be played between February 18 and March 12 in 2023 with the top four teams going on to represent Africa at the FIFA U20 World Cup in Indonesia.
“Everything must be done to ensure the Flying Eagles are fully prepared for the U20 AFCON and that will include an extended training camp in a place with similar weather conditions like Egypt,” Muktar Mohammed said.
“Currently it’s getting cold in Egypt and by the time of the AFCON, it will be a lot colder and so the boys have to get used to such weather before the tournament begins.
“We will continue to support and motivate the team on the promise and resolve of the NFF president Ibrahim Gusau.”
The FCT FA chairman today addressed the Flying Eagles after their evening training at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja.
He expressed confidence they will fly the country’s flag high in Egypt.
