Lagos - The team of newly promoted Abia Warriors Football Club of Umuahia was enlivened when some foreign players stormed the camp and dazzled in training.

Warriors have been training twice daily at the renovated Umuahia Township Stadium and soccer-hungry fans have been part of the training sessions as they throng  daily to the arena to catch the action, especially to see the foreign players.

Ivorien striker, Toure Desire Idriss and midfielder, Ngouan Marc Olivier Ibelson were joined by Benin Republic’s striker, Kuassi Judi and central defender, Xavier Abar Pierre Merch from Senegal in putting up some stellar performances to the admiration of the fans and technical crew led by former Super Eagles utility player, Emeka Ezeugo.

The Technical Adviser said the team was finalizing strategies and concentrating on physical training that will see the players through the whole season.
