“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.
