The newly inaugurated Task Force of the Age grade teams, Alhaji Aminu Kurfi Balele who flew to Lagos to meet with the Olympic Eagles, charged the players to return with victory.
The Katsina State born administrator laid more emphasis on the need to make the Nation proud, because even the number one Sports Man in the country was in their midst yesterday to show support and charge them. Alhaji Balele also gave the team his support.
"I am going an extra mile to ensure that your welfare and every other thing you need to make Nigeria proud will be put in place.
“The NFF President Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau has given us the mandate to ensure that age grade teams’ welfare is a priority and also focus on early preparation for camping, which we will focus on.
“Your subsequent camping will turn a new leaf, but you should all go out there and beat your Tanzania opponents," Alhaji Aminu Kurfi Balele concluded.
The team is scheduled to leave by 10pm tonight.
