The Abuja camp of Nigeria’s Super Eagles came alive early today as all the invited players but one, have arrived and getting set for the crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against the Lone Star of Liberia on 8 September in Monrovia.
With the exception of goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, who will hit camp tomorrow, all the players had their first full training session under the Chief Coach Stephen Keshi this afternoon.
Villarreal of Spain star, Ikechukwu Uche said on arrival in Abuja yesterday that the Eagles are in camp for real business, urging his teammates to brace up for a tough battle against the Liberians.
Also, newly signed Chelsea of England’s Victor Moses believes that the Eagles are heading for Monrovia to play the game of their lives.
“I won’t talk much now, because football is a collective game, and the team have resolved to play the match as if it’s a cup final,” Moses said.
Keshi is however not losing any sleep over fears that the Liberians may play some tricks to destabilise his team when they play in Monrovia this weekend.
There were fears about the type of hospitality that the Eagles would get, and the state of the pitch in Monrovia, but Keshi dismissed such fears, saying the team are focused on the must win encounter.
