ABUJA – Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, says players of the national Under-20 team, the Flying Eagles, can make the senior team if they are determined.
Keshi said this in Abuja on Thursday after his team’s training at the National Stadium Abuja in preparation for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Chad scheduled on June 13 in Kaduna.
He told newsmen that the under-20 players could graduate to the Super Eagles if they maintained the form they had achieved in their present Flying Eagles.

“Are they ready; if they leave the tournament what will they be doing, what is their concentration level, what is the desire to go forward or to remain where they are.

Keshi urged the Flying Eagles to be disciplined to enable them get to the final of the ongoing Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Keshi drilled the Super Eagles for the Chad encounter in company of his assistants.
Geoffrey Oboabona, Kenneth Omeruo, Kingsley Madu and Rabiu Ibrahim joined the Super Eagles training after beating the June 3 deadline given to them by the coach to arrive camp.
Their arrival swelled the number of foreign-based players in camp to 13, excluding Aaron Samuel and Ahmed Musa, who had the permission of the coach to arrive later because of `some peculiar factors’.
