Super Eagles training rounds off

13 November 2014, 11:13Israel Ojoko

Abuja - The Super Eagles round off their training session for the duel against the Red Devils of Congo in Abuja on Thursday morning.

Again, the training will take place at the Package B of the Abuja National Stadium, before the team jets out to Congo on Thursday night.

The Nigeria Football Federation under the leadership of Amaju Pinnick, has said it has absolute believe in the abilities of the present Super Eagles squad piloted by Stephen Keshi, to qualify for the Nations Cup next January.

NFF Vice President, Seyi Akniwunmi made this declaration while addressing players and officials after Wednesday evening training at the Package B of the Abuja National Stadium, otherwise known as FIFA Goals Project.

“We have absolute believe in this team and the technical crew and we are certain that we will not only win away from home in Congo, but come back in Uyo to pick the Nations Cup ticket. It’s difficult for a few people like you players to carry the weight of 170 million Nigerians but I urge you to please carry it and make Nigerians proud again, because we want to defend our title early next year,” he declared.
