Mikel, Onazi arrive at Super Eagles camp

02 September 2014, 17:12Israel Ojoko

Calabar – Midfielders John Obi Mikel and Ogenyi Onazi were among players who arrived the camp of the Super Eagles on Tuesday in Calabar.

Lunch time in Calabar for the Super Eagles technical crew was a delight, as camp suddenly upped to 17, with more players expected before training in the evening after only nine players trained in the morning training session.

Head Coach Stephen Keshi and his assistants were grinning from ear to ear as Ahmed Musa, Ogenyi Onazi, Efe Ambrose, Kenneth Omeruo, Juwon Oshaniwa, Sone Aluko, Mikel and standing captain Austin Ejide arrived on time to have lunch with the rest of the team.

Mikel’s entrance was particularly hilarious as he came in with hand gloves and asked Coach Keshi if he will need some with the fear of the Ebola disease in mind.

“Coach I have up to four hand gloves and if you don’t mind, I can hand one pair to you”, he said jokingly with the rest of the team reeling with laughter.

The spirit in camp in camp is very buoyant with the arrival of the super stars and Keshi says he expects the best from the players on Saturday in the game against Congo.
