No fewer than 20 male players and three officials have been invited by the Handball Federation of Nigeria for camping, ahead of the Intercontinental Handball Trophy in Mexico.
Coach of the team Fidelis Obi told the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Lagos that training would commence on Thursday at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere.
NAN reports that the junior male team would be flying the country’s flag at the netball competition organised by the International Handball Federation, scheduled to hold from November 25 to 30.
Obi expressed his delight over the commencement of the camping, adding that, “I’m very happy that at last, we are going to begin camping in Lagos.
“We have been eager to be in camp because the competition we are going for is highly demanding and we must be adequately prepared to ensure that we can excel.
“Now that we are going into closed camping, players will be more focused and there will not be room for distraction, so we the technical officials will also be dedicated.”
NAN recalls that the national junior team clinched the ticket to the intercontinental event at the continental competition in Djibouti in March.
