Lagos - Super Eagles have arrived in Congo Brazzaville ahead of Saturday’s 2015 AFCON qualifier.

25 players and the coaching crew landed in Congo through a chartered Discovery Airliner.

Going by the sparkling performance of the players in camp and a strong case made by Super Eagles boss, Stephen Keshi, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), leadership agreed that all 25 players who have been in camp in the last week for the duel against Congo.

From the team angle, it was another rigorous session by Head Coach, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi on Thursday in Abuja as the team finalized preparation for the game against Congo.

He juggled players between the Possibles and the Probables, that practically made it impossible for anyone to guess his start list for the game against the hard tacking Congolese.

Keshi simply said at the end of the training session that the team has worked hard enough and the result will show on Saturday.

“Tell Nigerians to just pray for the team and have believe that we can deliver,” he declared.
