Spanish Embassy Denies Visa to Nigeria’s U-15 Future Eagles for UEFA U-16 Tournament


The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) confirmed that players and officials of the U-15 Future Eagles were denied visas by the Spanish Embassy for the upcoming UEFA U-16 Development Tournament.

The NFF made this announcement on their verified social media platform.

Scheduled to fly to Spain this Afternoon (Tuesday), the team’s participation in the tournament was thwarted by the visa denial.

The NFF had earlier highlighted Nigeria’s impressive track record in youth football, including five world titles at the U-17 level and two FIFA U-20 World Cup final appearances, as the basis for the special invitation to the tournament.

The Future Eagles’ delegation to Spain, inclusive of 20 players, was to be led by a member of the NFF Technical and Development Committee, Mr. Mohammed Malah.
