The Golden Eaglets will face another hurdle on the road to international glory when they will be subjected to another MRI age test in Lome Tuesday afternoon.
Unlike previous U17 tournaments, a team who registered a player who failed the age test will also be disqualified from the competition as CAF step up zero tolerance for age cheating on the continent.
It was not clear whether a random sampling will be done of the squad or the entire squad will now be tested.
The Eaglets and their officials have already scaled the Coronavirus hurdle after they all tested negative in Togo.
The biggest test will be today’s afternoon.
The Eaglets Class of 2021 suffered a massive setback when 40 of the 60 players failed the mandatory age test in Abuja.
Coach Fatai Amoo had to do overtime to raise a completely different team less than two weeks to the U17 African Nations Cup qualifiers in Togo.
