The floods ravaging Germany have forced the Flying Eagles to change their training camp from Germany to Ebbs Bei Kufstein/Tirol in Austria, an official has said.
The team’s Media Officer, Samm Audu, disclosed this in a statement issued on yesterday from the national U-20 team’s camp in Germany.
“The team was originally scheduled to set up a second training base in Germany on their return from the Toulon International Tournament in France on Sunday.
“But the situation made this not to be possible, and we have now made changes,” he said.
Audu said the situation forced the team to train on an open field on Monday morning and would train at the Tirol Stadium later in the day.
The team is in Europe preparing for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup scheduled to hold in Turkey from June 21 to July 13.
The Flying Eagles are expected to fly to Turkey on June 17 from Frankfurt, Germany and play their first match at the U-20 FIFA World Cup on June 21 in Kayseri.
Their other first round games are against Cuba in Kayseri and South Korea in Istanbul.
