22 Eagles begin preparation for Niger Friendly

The Super Eagles had their
first training Monday evening
since returning to camp at
the Practice Pitch of the
National Stadium with Head
Coach, Stephen Keshi
complaining bitterly about
the state of the pitch.
As a result, the team will
relocate to the FIFA Goal
Project artificial turf in the
same vicinity despite the fact
that the friendly against
Niger Republic will be played
on natural grass.
In all 22 players trained on
Monday evening with
Sunshine Stars players still
being awaited. The players
from the Akure based side
are four in all and they were
expected to join the team by
Monday night on time for
Tuesday morning training.
Addressing the old and the
new invitees, Keshi again
told them to stand firm
against any inferiority
complex, as they have equal
opportunities to nick shirts
like the players who are
based abroad for the
September 8, Nations Cup
qualifier against the Lone
Star of Liberia.
“Just show me what you can
do on the pitch and leave the
rest for us to do when time
for selection of players for
the games come”, he said.
Keshi also announced that
Heartland winger, Obinna
Nwachukwu, who is injured
has been replaced by Crown
FC Femi Ajani, who is already
in camp and showed flashes
of a player hungry for
greatness in the round-
leather game. The 22 Players
that trained On Monday
