Super Eagles camp opens Thursday

16 October 2013, 14:06

Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says the camp of the home based Super Eagles will open on October 17 in preparation for the 2014 Championship of African Nations (CHAN) in South Africa.

This is contained in a statement signed by Ademola Olajire, the media officer of NFF, in Abuja on Tuesday.

The statement said Stephen Keshi, Head Coach of the senior national team, had invited 28 players to be at the Abuja camp.

It said the preparation would see the Super Eagles "Team B" play an international friendly with the Jordanian national football team in the Jordanian capital, Amman, on October 28.

The invited players include three goalkeepers, eight defenders, nine midfielders and eight strikers.

Ejike Uzoenyi, a former Super Eagles team "A" regular who returned after a stint in France, is a pleasant surprise on the list.

Top on the list are the five members of his "A" squad: goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim, defenders Azubuike Egwuekwe, Solomon Kwambe and Benjamin Francis, as well as midfielder Sunday Mba.

There are Team "B" regulars like goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, defenders Ebenezer Odunlami and Umar Zango, midfielder Etebo Oghene and forwards Miuhammad Gambo, Ifeanyi Edeh, Osadiaye Joseph and Ezekiel Mbah.

It is the first in a long list of international games that the NFF was putting together for the home boys ahead of the CHAN.

The statement quoted President of the Federation Aminu Maigari as advising all invited 28 players to arrive at the team’s Bolton White Apartments in Abuja on Thursday October 17 with their international passports.

It further said that visa processing for the trip to Amman, Jordan, would commence on October 18, while the delegation was expected to leave on October 25.
