“A team of 25 players and nine officials flew out of the country through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Wednesday evening for Dubai, where they connected another flight to Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“Four players would be cut from the roster after the preparatory period before a 21-man World Cup squad is unveiled ahead of the opening encounter,” the statement wrote.

The early departure will afford the Golden Eaglets two-weeks of final preparatory period, before the opening match of the tournament against Hungary in Goiania on 26th October.
