Super Eagles full house excites Keshi

04 September 2014, 11:23Israel Ojoko

Calabar - It’s been drumming hard in Calabar, the Cross River State capital in terms of rainfall and the Super Eagles seem to have shown that they are up to rain ball by the way they trained on Wednesday evening in the Canaan City.

Head Coach Stephen Keshi, his technical crew and even backroom staff were all out in the rain as the national team filed out with full compliments in Wednesday’s evening training.

The last two players to arrive, Emmanuel Emenike of Fernabahce of Turkey and Inter Milan’s Joel Obi were in full flight and the atmosphere was to say the least enthralling.

Though, Elkanemi goalie, David Obiaozor missed, officials say he can come and still be part of the team as he is a material for the future.

At the end of the rain-soaked training, Keshi again said he expects his wards to acquit themselves very well against the Red Devils of Congo on Saturday. The team has changed its training schedule from 4pm local time to 5pm, which is the time the continental soccer ruling body CAF, approved for the match on Saturday.
