The Nigeria U19s have rounded up their training ahead of their trip to Korea, where they are scheduled to take part in an invitational tournament.

Coach Manu Garba and his wards, the youngest ever assembled Nigeria youth team will depart Abuja today for Korea, where they will play England on Wednesday before tackling Iran and host Korea on Thursday and Saturday respectively.

In the build up to the tournament in Korea, the coach selected 22 players after two grueling test games against Jay-1 Soccer Academy of Abuja and Unity Football Academy of Kaduna.

They won both ties with same scoreline 4-1 with Usman Babalolo, Ishaq Abdulrasak, Igoh Ogbu and Stanley Kanu grabbing the goals for the Golden Eaglet against Jay-1 Academy while Osas Abiye scored the consolation for the Abuja based side.

In their final tune up against Unity Academy Babalolo and Kanu were once again on the score sheet with Bolaji Oyeti and Aminu Abubakar completing the rout against the Kaduna based side, although Hamza Ishaq scored a consolation goal to ease the pain on them.
