Lagos - Former Super Eagles player Garba Lawal has said the
2014 Championship for African Nations will not distract the team ahead of the
FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Nigeria will participate for the first time in the
championship that will kick off on January 11 in South Africa.
Lawal said the players that will participate in the CHAN games
will be different from the players that will feature at the World Cup.
“Only a very few players going to CHAN will make the final
list to Brazil, so it will not distract the team that will feature in the World
Cup," he said on Brila FM.
CHAN is a tournament organised by CAF for African footballers who
play in their local clubs on the continent.
The home based Eagles resumed camp on Monday in Abuja as
they intensify preparation for the championship.
