Quote: understands that five-time world champions, Golden Eaglets of Nigeria have been handed a boost ahead of their U17 Africa Cup of Nations opening match against Tanzania on Sunday, April 14.

The news everyone has been waiting for back home is positive, with all the 21 Nigeria U17 players named on the roster passing the mandatory Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests conducted on Friday morning before their first training session on Tanzanian soil.

Tanzania coach will have a depleted squad to choose from for tomorrow's game against the Golden Eaglets as two of their players failed the MRI tests and cannot be replaced as per the tournament rules.

Nigeria's potential opponents in the semifinals, Cameroon were the worst hit, with three players not passing the MRI tests, while one failed from Guinea.

Apart from the Golden Eaglets, players from Senegal, Uganda, Angola and Morocco were given a clean bill of health by the Confederation of African Football doctors.

Meanwhile, the Golden Eaglets trained today at the National Stadium, Dar es Salaam ahead of their showdown against the Serengeti Boys. The training session started at 1700 hours.

Manu Garba Reacts As MRI Knocks Off Five Key Players From Nigeria U17 Team
August 14, 2018

The strength of the Nigerian U17 team has been depleted after the mandatory Magnetic Resonance Imaging test popularly called the MRI test introduced by FIFA to curb the menace of age cheat claimed five regular players.
Players of the team underwent the test last week ahead of their campaign at the Africa U17 Qualifiers tournament in Niger Republic and the result was released two days back to the players by the technical crew of the team.
Led by coach Manu Garba, the technical crew painfully announced the name of five players who have been pivotal in their training plans among the players who failed the test, hence ruling them out of the tournament.
Reacting to the test result, Manu Garba said they will work hard to make up for the absence of the players : ” It’s unfortunate because they have been with us for a while but we will work hard to make up for their absence. They wil be missed but we are confident of finding capable replacement “, he told in a phone conversation. ... -u17-team/

These people never learn. You spend time training, feeding, housing these kids after whatever selection process they've gone through but keep your fingers crossed that they'll pass the most important. F3ck me. These guys are behaving stupidly just to save money. So how much have they saved now - didn't they still have to do the MRI?

:clap: Just the Nigerian way of thinking, cutting corners and saving money on the short term so they can see if there’s any change to party with!
