Assistant coach of Nigeria’s U17 national team, the Golden Eaglets, Nduka Ugbade has confirmed that two more players have failed the mandatory MRI age test in Niamey, Niger Republic.
“We aren’t happy with the development as this has depleted our team for the competition,” Ugbade told Footballlive.ng.
“No one wants to forego his best weapon for the battle ahead.”
“We have a game against Burkina Faso. All we need is to go to the field and prove our mettle.”
“The young lads are in tournament mood. They won’t be swept away with the pressure,” he added.
