In a bid to select the best players that will represent Nigeria at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile later in the year, Golden Eaglets coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, has thrown the team’s camp open for players that can fit into his plan.

The reigning world champions which is hoping to retain the trophy won in UAE two years ago under Manu Garba, qualified for the tournament as one of Africa’s four representatives after finishing third at the CAF U-17 Championship in Niger early this year.

Amuneke, who revealed that he has invited some players that started with the team, also said that other uninvited players would be giving a look for as long as they meet his demand.

“It’s really not a question of how many more players to invite, we are making it possible for every player who falls within the category to come down and prove themselves. We have invited some and also available all others to come around.”
