Coach Manu Garba will tomorrow in Abuja open a training camp of 25 players for an invitational tournament in South Korea next month.
The tourney is set to begin on November 7.
The organisers will provide flight tickets and boarding for the squad.
Manu said a final squad of 18 players will make the trip to Korea, meaning seven players will be dropped before the departure for Seoul.
The core of the squad is made up of the Golden Eaglets who failed to qualify for next year’s 2017 AFCON U17 in Madagascar with some who failed the age test also drafted.
