By JACOB  AJOM, Algeria

Flying Eagles coach, John Obuh has said the team that has just secured a ticket for the FIFA Junior World Cup, Istanbul 2013 could still witness changes before the tournament.

In à chat with Sunday Vanguard sports at the team’s Eden Hotel camp of the Flying Eagles, Obuh said the team will resume camp for the FIFA U-20 World Cup soon. ‘’In camp, we usually go “30 or 32 players, and we are here with just 22. So that tells you that it is not only those that are in Algeria that will fight for shirts for the World Cup team,’’ Obuh said.

He disclosed that his World Cup programme would soon submit his World Cup programme to the NFF. ‘’What I normally do is that I use my last competition to prepare my programme. I combine the programme with the review of the competition and that is what I am going to do as soon as we arrive home from Algeria.,’’ Obuh said.

The sweat merchant said during the pre-World Cup camping, he would like to take his players beyond the African continent. ‘’I want us to go on a playing tour of Europe because we are going to the World Cup where we will be meeting teams from other continents. We need the exposure,’’ he said.

He called for support from well-meaning Nigerians. ‘’All hands must be on deck as we need the support of every Nigerian.’’
