Stars Builders Academy Striker Segun Otusanya has been handed a call-up to the National U20 camp by coach Ladan Bosso, aclsports reports.
The youngster, who was part of the U23 side that eliminated Tanzania in the Olympics Qualifier in October, has been given a call-up to the Flying Eagles ahead of the 2023 Africa U20 Cup of Nations in Egypt.
It will be recalled that Bosso’s side have been in camp for a few weeks with a large pool of players, but the former Adamawa United coach has extended call-ups to other youngsters after a significant number of them were sent home due to various reasons.
