This was to guarantee them places on the final lists of selected players for the encounters.

Samson Siasia took charge of the Super Eagles training, while Fatai Amoo handled the national under-23 male team.

The training later took a different dimension when both teams engaged each other in a training match, with the under-23 side winning 1-0.

Defender Kalu Orji did not take part in the training due to a slight injury he sustained in Tuesday’s drill.

The Rangers International FC of Enugu player, however, told NAN that he would be fit for the 2017 AFCON qualifier against Egypt on March 25.
