.As Tanzania Arrive For AYC Qualifier –
Flying Eagles Coach Manu Garba has ruled out Granada striker Isaac Success from Saturday’s African Youth Championship qualifier against Tanzania in Kaduna.
Success was due to join the team on Tuesday as he promised, but he is still being held back by his La Liga club and will now only fly out to Nigeria on Friday for his holidays.
“I spoke to the player and after our discussion it was best he does not feature on Saturday for us”, Manu disclosed.
“However, he could come around to cheer his fellow teammates from the stands”.
Meanwhile, the Flying Eagles trained Thursday morning at match venue, Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna.
The entire squad was drilled on ball work, set pieces and penalties. They will round up their preparation for the AYC qualifier on Friday morning at the same venue.
Saturday’s opponents Ngorongoro Heroes of Tanzania are due in Kaduna Thursday afternoon after they stopped over in Lagos the previous day.
The Tanzanians, who lost the first leg 2-0 in Dar es Salaam, trained in Denmark ahead of this weekend’s encounter.
