Golden Eaglets resume full training

18 September 2014, 10:11Israel Ojoko

Calabar - Golden Eaglets resumed training at their base in Calabar on Tuesday barely hours after they returned to the country from Libreville where they lost 2-1 to their Gabonese counterparts in a qualifier for the Africa U17 Championship.

The contingent, who actually left Libreville on Monday for Lome aboard ASKY Airline, breezed into Lagos in the night through neighbouring Cotonou but finally arrived Calabar midday on Tuesday aboard Arik Airlines to begin preparations in earnest for the finale qualifier against Gabon next week.

Head Coach Emmanuel Amuneke said it was important to resume training immediately in view of the enormity of the task ahead even as he enjoined the players to give their utmost best in the days.

"I want you to put behind all that happened in Libreville because that is gone," Amuneke said. "I want you to know that we are condemned to win our match here and you must be focused on everything we are going to do from now.

"What we demand of you is hard work and nothing but hard work; because we want you to show Gabon that you don't need to be aided by referee to win matches.

"We believe in you and we want you to apply yourself because we are going to undergo strenuous work in the coming days as we build up towards the match," he warned.
