Super Eagles relish off day

21 January 2014, 20:49Israel Ojoko

Cape Town - The technical crew of the Super Eagles at the African Nations Championship declared Tuesday as rest day to the delight of the team.

The team will not train on Tuesday and are to return to the pitch on Wednesday ahead of the quarterfinal clash against Morocco on Saturday.

Defender, Azubuike Egwuekwe said it’s a good thing to take time off to relax.

“I love the free day because it will relax all of us but we know how it is when we return from such free days and I have told my mates to behave themselves. Some of us may not even go anywhere we will just use the opportunity to relax well”, he said.

Solomon Kwambe said it was not yet time to shop and he will go out but will wait to shop after the cup has been won.

“We still have some time to do whatever it is that we want to do and part of it is buying things for our loved ones, and that will happen after we have gone through the stages we want to get to, the trophy that we believe belongs to us”.

Team Skipper, Chigozie Agbim, said he was delighted at the opportunity to relax but called on his mates to act according to camp rules.

“We all know the rules and we will keep to them stringently, but we must thank the technical crew for giving us the opportunity to unwind. We must also thank the NFF for all the support that they have been offering to the team by meeting all our demands since the second week of December last year”, he said.
