Concise News understands that the competition which is billed to start on Thursday next week is taking place in Poland.
In a statement, Pinnick charged the coach Paul Aigbogun boys to be of good character and fly the nation’s flag high.
“I have spoken to the head coach and he has assured me that you guys have made tremendous progress since arriving at the training camp here in Germany,” Pinnick noted.
“Let me state clearly that as an U20 squad from Nigeria, so much is expected of you at the world stage. Nigeria has been in the final of the FIFA U20 World Cup on two occasions and won the bronze medals once before.”
He added that “The NFF and Nigerians generally, as well as the football world, expect so much from you in Poland.
“You must perform very well on the field while showing good attitude and sense of fair play, and also make discipline, diligence and decency your watchwords off the field, in order to fly Nigeria’s flag high.”
The West Africans are in Group D of the competition alongside USA, Qatar and Ukraine.
