Lagos - It was great news for the Flying Eagles when on
arrival in Morocco they learnt that the wife of team secretary, Aliyu Auwal
Ibrahim aka ‘Ali Cairo’, had put to bed.
Ali, like the rest of the squad, was airborne on the way to
Casablanca when his wife went into labour and one could only imagine the mental
torture all through the four-hour flight from Lagos for him.
“I was really not myself during the flight, but I’m relieved
that everything went very well,” said Ali, a father for the second time.
“Allah be praised.”
The Flying Eagles had since settled in Casablanca, Morocco
ahead of the first of a two-legged friendly on Wednesday.
