The head coach of the Nigeria U20 team Ladan Bosso has wielded the big axe on some players in the camp of the team ahead of the naming of the final 25 man list for the U20 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Prior to the start of yesterday’s training, four players were sent home from the camp of the team while one invited foreign based player in Lekan Oyedele of Feirense was told not to bother resuming, with the coach okay with the options in the left back position that he plays.
Yesterday was also the first time that all invited foreign based players who arrived the camp over the weekend took part in full training. Bosso had the players against themselves in a test game.
The game ended in a stalemate but it afford the coach the chance to have a first hand view of Ademola Ola-Adebomi of Crystal Palace, Joel Ideho of Arsenal, Michael Ologo of Istanbulspor and Abel Ogwuche of Trelleborgs.
During the session, the duo of Ideho and Ogwuche were particularly impressive while Ologo showed the composure expected of a player, who has top flight experience. Ola-Adebomi was imposing but didn’t get enough time to show his abilities.
He played for around 15 minutes and appeared to be uncomfortable with the nature of the playing surface at the FIFA Goal Project. He was also seen having a discussion with some of his teammates about the weather.
