Eaglets Coach wants fresh MRI tests to avoid embarrassment ahead of World Cup


The Nigeria Football Federation will do well to avoid another MRI embarrassment as the Eaglets prepare for the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup following concerns expressed by assistant Coach Nduka Ugbade to subject the current players in the team to further age tests.

Ugbade told footballlive.ng that the new tests proposed for for precautionary purposes to avoid overlooking small details that could hinder Nigeria’s campaign in Brazil.


Most players in the Eaglets camp participated in the AFCON tournaments in Tanzania, but a lot of growth and development must have occurred within the five months period since, the Coach observed.


“It’s not always so because in two months, you can grow and not develop but there is no way you develop without growing and as days goes by the speed with which we develop is different where we will now talk about the physicality the body mass difference of individuals.”
