The Nigeria Under-20 national team coach Paul Aigbogun will in the coming months call up some foreign based players to his squad, who are currently in Abuja training ahead of the start of qualifiers for the Africa Youth Championship.
Owngoalnigeria.com gathered that the coach is focused on using players from clubs in the Nigeria Professional Football League and also the Nigeria National League for the main time, before calling some foreign based players to join them.
Already training has been on for two weeks, and top sources revealed to Owngoalnigeria.com that, the second phase of their training will involve foreign based players who are within the age limit.
Furthermore, head coach of the team Paul Aigbogun has a list of players eligible for the team, with the duo of Bologna teen sensation Kingsley Michael, and Villarreal super teen Samuel Chukwueze included in the list.
The duo were part of the Nigerian team that failed to qualify for the last U-20 World Youth Championship, a year after they played a very big role in helping Nigeria lift the U17 World Cup .
