The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has banned visitors from the national Under-17 team, Golden Eaglets’ Katsina camp, where they are preparing for the Cadet World Cup billed for Chile later this year.

According to the federation’s secretary, Ademola Olajire, the NFF decided to allow the team have a close camp in the Northern part of the country to afford Coach Emmanuel Amuneke and his team enough time to train for the forthcoming championship without distraction.

Olajire, who praised the Katsina State government for putting the team in a comfortable environment to fine tune strategies for the World Cup, revealed that the NFF was ready to give the boys the necessary assistance to prepare well for the World Cup.

“The NFF allowed the boys to train in Katsina to enable the players concentrate well in training. We are grateful the Katsina State government for giving the team the assistance to prepare for the World Cup,” he said.

The Golden Eaglets are pooled alongside host Chile, Croatia and USA in Group A at the Cadet Championship.
