The Nigeria Football Federation has stopped the coaches of the national U20 female team, the Falconets from inviting foreign based players to camp in preparation for the FIFA U20 women’s World Cup in Papua New Guinea.
The order, was made by the NFF board in the light of the excruciating effect of lack of funds.
The federation kicked against the move by coach Peter Dedevbo for early camping of foreign based players, because it was wary of the huge cost to be incurred on flight tickets, camp allowances and accommodation.
The Falconets were losing finalists at the 2014 event in Canada and will be aiming to improve on that feat by becoming the first African team to win the competition.
Nigeria is drawn in Group B alongside Spain, Canada and Japan.
The tournament begins on November 13.
