Coach Samson Siasia has given his Super Eagles wards the weekend off to play Nigeria Premier League matches for their domestic clubs.
“You should go back to your clubs and help them in the League matches this weekend. But you must be back here by Monday. Whoever is not here on Monday should count himself out of the running for a shirt”, said Siasia as the players had lunch at their Bolton White Apartments camp before dispersing to different parts of the country.
This came after the team had played a 2-2 draw with the national U-20 side, Flying Eagles in a knock-around at the artificial turf of theFIFA Technical Centre, Abuja.
On Wednesday evening, Chairman of the NFF Technical Committee, Barrister Chris Green, vice chairman of the committee Felix Anyansi Agwu and Acting General Secretary, Barrister Musa Amadu watched the Eagles in their evening training session at the Technical Centre.
After the session, Barrister addressed the players, telling them to imbibe disciplined conduct and show dedication and determination at training.
“You must be ready to listen to the technical crew headed by Coach Samson Siasia at all times, because if the Coach says you are out, you are out. Discipline is important in everything you do, and be assured that the Nigeria Football Federation will give the team the needed support at all times”, said Green.
A total of 27 players featured in the camping programme that resumes on Monday.
