Keshi begins search for Eagles camp base

09 December 2013, 13:17Israel Ojoko

Sao Paulo - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has begun the search for a camp base ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Keshi is presently inspecting a number of possible camps in the South American nation, and specifically around Sao Paulo.

Most of the 32 participating member associations are also looking around Sao Paulo for their team base camp. A total of 83 team base camps (TBCs) were offered in the final TBC brochure.

A TBC consists of a hotel and a training site. All participating member associations must confirm their camp before the end of next month.

All teams must report at camp no later than five days before their first match of the tournament.

In the case of Nigeria, that means no later than 11th June, five days before the Super Eagles clash with Iran at the 41 000 capacity Arena da Baixada in Curitiba – a city of 1.7 million people in the south of Brazil.

The Eagles will then tackle Bosnia-Herzegovina at the 42 000 capacity Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba, a city of approximately 550 000 people in the centre west, on Saturday, 21st June, before flying to the south again to play Argentina in what is Group F’s most anticipated game.

That match comes up at the 48 000 capacity Estadio Beira-Rio in Porto Alegre, a city of more than 1.4 million people, on Wednesday, 25th June.
