Ismail said this on Tuesday following the team’s last training session in Kaduna. “It is almost two weeks now since we resumed camp and we have put in a lot of efforts to train very hard.
“We have been preparing seriously and I am happy to say that the players have been responding well and I am impressed by their performance so far.
“As we conclude our training programme, I can assure that we are fully ready to secure one of Africa’s six tickets to the YOG”, coach Ismail said.
The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that the team, the national U-17 team, are preparing for the YOG African Qualifiers scheduled for Ghana from 10-15 April.
