The National U15 Team also known as Future Eagles have arrived in Miyagi, Japan for this year’s edition of International Dream Cup for U16 teams.
A team of 18 players and eight officials, led by NFF Executive Committee member Musa Adamu Duhu arrived Japan on Monday evening.
The Future Eagles programme, bankrolled by Zenith International Bank, headlines the youth development vision of the Amaju Pinnick administration, and is a conscious and deliberate effort to reposition Nigerian Football through the building of a hygienic pool of talents that will supply the various National Teams with decent, well –nurtured talent.
Products of the NFF/Zenith Bank Future Eagles programme won silver medals at the 3rd African Youth Games in Algiers in the summer of 2018, and form the bulk of the present U17 National Team heading to the FIFA U17 World Cup in Brazil later in the year.
The Future Eagles will take on the U16 National Team of Mexico at the Yurtec Stadium in Miyagi on Wednesday, 12th June, before clashing with host nation Japan on 14th June. They will confront Romania on 16th June at the same venue.
