Olympic Eagles step up preparation for match against Tanzania

The U23 Boys’ National Team, often known as the Olympic Eagles, started their preparation on Friday in anticipation of their forthcoming 2023 Africa U23 Cup of Nations qualification match against Tanzania.

It will be recalled Nigeria won gold at the 1996 Men’s Olympic Football Tournament in Atlanta, the United States, silver in China twelve years later, and bronze in Brazil six years ago.

The players engaged in rigorous tactical training on Friday while being closely observed by the technical staff, which included Kennedy Boboye, Abubakar Bala, and goalkeeper’s trainer Suleiman Shuaibu. The technical staff was supervised by Coach Salisu Yusuf.

The team has been training twice daily at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Adamasingba, where they will host the return leg of the fixture against the East Africans on Saturday, 29th October.

Nigeria’s delegation to the first leg is expected to depart the country on Wednesday, 19th October for Dar es Salaam, with the first leg coming up on the weekend of 21st – 23rd October.
