15 of the players in camp featured at the African Under 17 Championship in Morocco while the remaining 15 - mostly made up of defenders and midfielders - were picked from the screening exercise held in Abuja.

In the next three weeks, some players from the pool of 30 will be dropped and another batch of 15 players - largely made up of offensive players - will join the camp.

Nigeria , Ivory Coast , Tunisia and Morocco will represent Africa at the 15th Edition of the Fifa Under 17s.
