Flying Eagles head coach, Ladan Bosso, disclosed why he dropped 15 players out from the team’s camp, Sportgister.com.ng reports.
The affected players were decamped last weekend.
“Players with injuries are not accepted because the national team is not a rehabilitation centre, so go and finish your treatment and probably, you can meet us in January,” Bosso disclosed to BRILA FM.“So, I have given them that full break within the next two weeks.
And those ones with passport issues, if you don’t have passport, there is no way you can play in the national team.”Coach Ladan Bosso led the Flying Eagles to scoring 17 goals in three friendly matches in Abuja.
The youth u-20 cadet defeated Paul E Sports Football Academy (5-0), Capital City (5-0) and Keffi Selected (7-0) in friendlies played.
Bosso has already extended invitation to new players to beef up the team as they intensify preparations ahead of the competition.
The Flying Eagles are expected to engage in more tune-up games before they embark on Christmas and New Year break.
