The camp of the Flying Eagles of Nigeria of Nigeria ahead of their campaign at the upcoming Africa U20 Cup of Nations has come alive with the arrival of all invited players, Owngoalnigeria.com reports.
Since the start of training on Monday, coach Paul Aigbogun has enjoyed the compliment of all the players he called up in his list and that has added an edge to their training session.
In the session watched by Owngoalnigeria.com correspondent, Watford teen star Jayden Bennets looked quite decent on the ball and also very combative off the ball plus he also has an eye for goal.
Rosenborg defender Igho Ogbu has also caught the eyes with his tackles and interceptions from the rear coupled with his ability to hit passes with precision which has helped his team build attack from the rear.
Afeez Aremu of Norwegian side IK Start has been the most impressive player so far among the foreign players in the team but he isn’t way ahead of Seattle Sounders left full back Ibrahim Usman who is pushing for the spot owned by the captain of the team Ikouwem Udoh.
Usman was particularly impressive in one on one duels and also providing coverage for the central defenders and the thrice he was involved in defending through the middle earned him plaudits from coach Aigbogun.
