Keshi: No injury worries

14 November 2014, 20:40Israel Ojoko

Point Noire - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has said there are no injury worries among the 25 players that traveled for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Congo Brazzaville.

The Nigeria national team arrived the Congolese city of Point Noire 2:30am on Friday and after passing through immigration proceedings, were checked into Atlantic Palace Hotel in the heart of the city.

Keshi was not happy with rumours that the team was riddled with injuries, and quick to counter, saying the team was actually 100 percent fit at the moment.

“Mikel (Obi) is super fit, Enyeama (Vincent) had a slight shoulder strain and he’s also in perfect shape now, Raheem Lawal had knock during our last training session (in Abuja) and he has since bounced back. So we should stop scaring Nigerians with reports that the team is injury hit,” he declared after conferring with team doctor, Ibrahim Gyaran.

It was drama at the airport as over 100 Nigerians resident in Congo, kept vigil to welcome the team with familiar songs, drumming and dancing. The atmosphere was very lively as they mobbed the coaching crew and players while seizing the rare opportunity of taking photos with the Nigerian team.
