“They’ll face South Korea, Japan and a team from São Paulo during this intensive camping.”

Achi also revealed there might be some adjustment to the squad and final selection.

“A lot of players who went for the tournament in Turkey will be shocked, because some didn’t raise their game and there’s a chance that those who didn’t join the Turkey trip will break into the squad.”

Nigeria’s bid for a record extending sixth title will get underway on October 26 against Hungary.

The Eaglets are in Group B alongside Hungary, Ecuador and Australia.
