The Golden Eaglets are already in Brazil for the U 17 World Cup billed to commence from the 16th of this month, and Coach Manu Garba is optimistic of a decent showing at the Mundial.
Though, there was little delay in traveling due to the usual MRI test required by FIFA, in a bid to curb the use of overage players in the tournament.
The players in Brazil are made up mainly by the squad who recently featured at the UEFA/CAF invitational tournament in Turkey, where they won two matches and lost to Senegal.
The Eaglets open their World Cup campaign against Hungary.
They will also battle Ecuador and Australia in the first round of the championship.
