08 September 2014, 18:29Israel Ojoko

Cape Town - Reigning African champions, the Super Eagles, have landed in the rainbow city of Cape Town, South Africa, ahead of Wednesday’s all important Nations Cup qualifier against Bafana Bafana.

The team, made up of 21 players flew into Johannesburg from Lagos in a South Africa Airways plane. The trip from Lagos lasted six hours before they took another flight to Cape Town.

Among the 22 players that prosecuted the ill-fated game against Congo Brazzaville on Saturday, only Elkanemi FC goalkeeper, David Obiazor, did not make the trip.

Head Coach Stephen Keshi decided to keep faith with the same squad and the team will have its first training session for the match at 8pm local time, which is 7pm Nigerian time.

Keshi who did not travel with the team on Sunday night due to pressing personal issues will link up with the rest of the squad on Tuesday morning.

In his absence, Daniel Amokachi will handle Monday’s work-out. The team is quartered at the serene Southern Sun hotel on the outskirts of Cape Town.
