Moses, Ike Uche, Echejile hit Eagles camp

At least four foreign
based players arrived
the Super Eagles Bolton
White Apartment camp
as at 6pm Friday, as
the team defied the
heavy downpour in the
nation’s capital for its
first training session
with stars from Europe
on Monday evening.
The torrential rainfall
had started about two
hours to training time
and was sustained but
subdued as at 4pm,
when players and
officials started
strolling into the
team’s bus for the
day’s business, which
held at the training
pitch of the Abuja
National Stadium.
As has now become
the tradition, Chelsea’s
new acquisition Victor
Moses, was the first to
arrive camp and was
closely followed by
another stickler for
time, Obiorah
Nwankwo, who plays
his football in Italy. The
duo were the only
foreign based that
trained with the 13
home based stars in
camp in Monday’s
evening training.
By the time the team
reached camp, hotshot,
Ikechukwu Uche, had
reached the apartment,
same for defence ace
Elderson Echejile. Many
more were expected
before dinner time.
Head Coach Stephen
Keshi, says all the
players will take part in
today’s evening
training. “Only Vincent
Enyeama is expected
on Wednesday for a
reason but we should
be good by Tuesday
evening”, he said.
Officials here are
predicting a difficult
game for Nigeria,
going by the poor state
of the Samuel Kanyon
Doe Stadium pitch, but
Keshi has assured that
Liberians are very
friendly and he expects
a good but bruising
encounter.
“No game is easy
again, either in Africa
and the world but we
would do our best to
get the result that
Nigerians want”, he
declared.
