Surprise As U-15 Team Misses UEFA Tournament After Visa Denial

The Nigeria U-15 team has lost the chance to participate in the UEFA U15 Development Tournament slated to commence on Friday following visa denial by the Spanish Embassy.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) disclosed this in a post on its X platform handle.

It however did not state the reason for the denial.

The NFF said: “Players and officials of the Nigeria U15 team, Future Eagles, have been denied visas by the Spanish Embassy and will therefore not be travelling to take part in the UEFA U16 Development Tournament starting on Friday.”

Nigeria’s Future Eagles U15 team were to fly into Spain on Tuesday afternoon following an invitation to participate in the tournament.

The Future Eagles’ delegation to Spain would have included 20 players to be led by a member of the NFF Technical and Development Committee, Zannah Mohammed Malah.
