Eagles camp positive ahead of Malawi visit

04 September 2013, 14:05

Lagos - The Super Eagles team coordinator, Emmanuel Attah, is impressed by the mood in the squad ahead of the crucial World Cup qualifier this coming weekend.

Nigeria play Malawi in a top-of-the-table clash in Calabar in a match that will determine the team that books a berth in the next stage of the qualifiers.

Attah disclosed that 18 players had so far reported at the team’s training camp in Calabar.

"The spirit in camp is very high and there are no injury worries," said an upbeat Attah.

The players have been streaming into camp ahead of the match. With the arrival of top stars like Obi Mikel and Vincent Enyeama, the Super Eagles training camp in Calabar is now bubbling.

Both players missed last month’s friendly win against South Africa in Durban.

Others at the training camp are goalkeepers Austin Ejide and Chigozie Agbim, Godfrey Oboabona and James Okwuosa, who was the first to arrive the camp on Monday. 

Brown Ideye, Solomon Kwambe, Benjamin Francis, Azubuike Egwuekwe, Ogenyi Onazi, Uche Nwofor, Efe Ambrose, Sunday Mba, Ahmed Musa, Obinna Nsofor and Victor Moses have also been reported to be in the training camp, but Emmanuel Emenike and Shola Ameobi are among the players still to arrive by Wednesday.

John Ogu has been held back at his Portuguese base by flight connections.

Nigeria lead Group F on nine points, two points more than closest rivals Malawi, who need to win on Saturday to advance to the next stage.
