THE Nigeria Football Federation has confirmed Mr. Oladunni Oyekale as Head Coach of the Five–A-Side National Football Team, otherwise known as Futsal Eagles.
The Federation is making arrangements for the team to start camping in Lagos from Wednesday in preparation for a FIFA Futsal World Cup qualifying match against Gabon early next month.
Oyekale said on Monday: “Yes, we are inviting players to camp as from Wednesday. We are going to rely heavily on players from the Ultimate Five-A-Side Football Competition that has been going on for a few years now, for us to prosecute the World Cup qualifier. I have been following the competition myself and I believe we have players good enough to do the nation proud”.
Confederation of African Football has picked Tunisian referees to take charge of the qualifier against Gabon in Lagos on May 6.
The Centre Referee is Chamssedine Lamti, with his compatriots Mohamed Abdi as 1st Assistant Referee, Thameur Salem as 2nd Assistant Referee and Salim Moez Ben as TK. The Match Commissioner is Jose Lobato from Guinea Bissau.
The second leg will take place in Libreville two weeks later with Cameroonian officials in charge.
