08 November 2016, 15:07

Abuja - Captain Mikel Obi, Ahmed Musa and 18 others on Tuesday took part in the Super Eagles first training session at the National Stadium, Abuja.

Mikel and Musa were among the latest arrivals at the team’s camp on Monday night.

The team were separated into three groups and began with a light walk-out and head-tennis training under the watchful eyes of Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr and Coach Salisu Yusuf.

Mikel, Odion Ighalo, Ogenyi Onazi, William Troost-Ekong, Moses Simon and John Ogu made up the first group.

The second group had Victor Moses, Musa, Kenneth Omeruo, Kingsley Madu and Uche Agbo.

Kelechi Iheanacho, Alex Iwobi, Musa Mohammed and Wilfred Ndidi were in the third group, while goalkeepers Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi trained separately.

NAN observed that Ezenwa was very sharp in goal and displayed good reflexes, while his counterpart, Akpeyi was a little jaded and lacked match fitness.

Mikel showed some sign of class and precision in his touches and passes, while Victor, Iheanacho and Iwobi were in excellent form.

The trio of Leon Balogun, Brown Ideye and Shehu Abdullahi who were nursing knee and ankle injuries were engaged in light ball work.

Goalkeeper Dele Alampasu, Elderson Echiejile and Oghenekaro Etebo are yet to arrive at the camp.

The team is expected to hold another training session later on Tuesday.

The Super Eagles will lock horns with Algeria in crucial Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo on Saturday.
