West Ham United youth player Daniel Toma and Manchester City U19 midfield Tom Dele-Bashiru are the biggest revelations in camp as the Flying Eagles intensify preparations in Germany for this month’s FIFA U20 World Cup.
Toma, who has scored 21 goals from 19 matches and made eight assists for the West Ham youth team joined the Nigeria camp on April 28 and has been very impressive from the flanks with good runs and brilliant pullouts.
He played just five minutes in the friendly with Freiburg that ended 3-3 but had enough time to put up a big impression in the hearts of fans who applauded his dashing runs and clever dribbles down the flanks.
Coach Paul Aigbogun is very excited with Toma alongside some other foreign-based players like Tom Dele Bashiru of Manchester City and Henry Offia who is also having a fantastic time in camp.
Nigeria are zoned the same pool with Qatar, USA and Ukraine at the 2019 FIFA Under 20 World Cup finals after finishing fourth at Africa U20 Cup of Nations finals in Niger Republic.
The U20 Women’s World cup proper starts on the 23rd of May and ends on the 15th of June in Poland.
