Cape Town - The Super Eagles did not take a break after
Wednesday’s 4-2 victory over Mozambique at the on-going African Nations
Championship as the team were back in training on Thursday evening.
Midfielder, Ikenna Ene Paul and defence ace, Benjamin
Francis are still not fit yet for full training due to hamstring and knee
problems but the team doctors are working round the clock to ensure that they
get back well in the course of the tournament.
Stephen Keshi said it’s not looking too good but added that
the team came to the tournament with 23 players and the others should be able
to hold their own against any opposition.
Super Eagles winger, Ejike Uzoenyi who was named Man of the
Match, in the 4-2 win over Mozambique has said the award will spur the team to
greater heights at the ongoing tourney in South Africa.
Speaking after he received the award, the petit Rangers
International of Enugu star said he was a bit surprised at being named the star
man of the game but added that the award will not have been possible if his
team mates had not been very effective also in the encounter.
“This award is for the entire team and I hope we go all the
way and win this tournament for Nigerians”, he said.
