Cairo - The Golden Eaglets, after arriving Cairo are lodged
here at the Sheraton Dreamland Hotel and Conference Centre sited about an hour
drive from the Cairo International Airport.
The Emmanuel-Amuneke tutored side did not get to their new
abode until about 11:15pm local time (10:15pm Nigerian time) on Wednesday night
but have since settled down well at the pleasant environment.
The Sheraton Dreamland is within the ambit of The 6th of
October City-in a private urban development area that is reportedly a few kilometres
west to the famous Pyramids of Giza.
Moments after breakfast sans Muslims, who are observing the
Ramadan, the team took a walk around the impressive Dreamland Park much to the delight
of the players.
"This place is beautiful," volunteered Douglas
Uzama, an indigene of Edo state. "I have been to the amusement park in
Benin but this is a wonderful place. In fact, this is my first time of
travelling outside the country and I'm really enjoying it."
Other first time travellers like pint-sized Sunday Ali,
Henry Okebugwu, Jack Ipalibo, Chinedu Madueke and a host of others were pleasantly
surprised while savouring the facilities on offer at the Sheraton Dreamland Park.
"It is good to be here with the team," stated
Madueke. "This was the first trip outside the country for most of us and
you can see that we are really excited about it.
"But the most important thing is the matches
we are going to play and I believe this is a good motivation for me as well as
my teammates," he added with a relish.
