Abuja - The Super Eagles were on Sunday in Abuja decamped to enable them resume training in the first week of October for their return clash with the Lone Star of Liberia.
The team’s Media Officer, Ben Alaiya, said in a statement that team chief coach Stephen Keshi announced the breaking of camp to the players immediately on return to Abuja Sunday morning.
The senior national football team are due to host the Liberians in Calabar on Oct. 13.
The match is the second leg game of their 2013 African Nations Cup Final Qualifying Round Fixture, with the aggregate winner going through to the finals in South Africa.
NAN reports that the Eagles were held to a 2-2 draw by the Lone Star on Sept. 8 in the first leg game at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium in Monrovia.
``Those that will be needed for the return leg match will be notified early,’’ Keshi was quoted as saying while addressing the players at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.
The team which had departed Abuja on Friday morning for the Saturday game had arrived in Abuja in the early hours of Sunday after leaving Monrovia about three hours earlier.
Keshi’s announcement had led to many of the players, especially the overseas-based ones, heading back to base.
A few other Eagles players had however headed to the team’s Bolton White Apartments’ camp and were expected to leave for their bases some hours later.
The statement also quoted the team’s Secretary, Dayo Achor, as saying dates for the October camping would be announced later.
``The Nigeria Football Association (NFA) will take a decision on the camping dates and place for the team later this week.
``However, a proposal that will see the Nigeria-based players resuming camp ahead of their overseas-based counterparts is already being worked on,’’ it added.
