NFF Cautions Garba Against Limiting Flying Eagles Selection

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has cautioned the new Flying Eagles coach Manu Garba against restraining his team selection to his Under 17 World Cup-winning team.

NFF director of technical Emmanuel Ikpeme said: “Manu must not shut the door to other player.,” 

“We have not said he should not invite some of his U17 players, but he must give other players a chance to fight for a shirt.

“We have abundant talents in the country and I am sure there are some out there who can make the Flying Eagles team if given the opportunity.”

Manu was appointed alongside his assistant from the U17 team, Nduka Ugbade, to handle the country’s U20 team, the Flying Eagles, which will begin their campaign for the 2015 African Youth Championship to be hosted by Senegal in May.
