“We went out and were able to secure a training pitch for the team. We are returning to the hotel now and training sessions will kick off this afternoon,” Yusuf, a former Nigeria international, said on the phone from Germany.
The Flying Eagles arrived in Germany on Sunday, to start a three-week final training camp ahead of a tournament at which they are expected to perform very well.
The squad of 26 players will be joined by four overseas-based professionals in a few days, before a final list of 21 is drawn next week Friday to represent Nigeria at the finals.
The two –time runners-up will play Brazil, North Korea and Hungary in Group E, with venue at New Plymouth.
