‘Faro Training Can Make Eagles Champions’


Elderson Echiejile has said Nigeria could be African champions again next year if they make the most of a training camp in Faro, Portugal.

The Eagles will open a training camp in Portugal on 27 December and the Sporting Braga defender believes hard work and sacrifices there could be rewarded with a third Nations Cup conquest by Nigeria in South Africa.

“I believe if we give everything in the training camp, we will have a very great Nations Cup,” Elderson said.

“This means that most of us have to cut short deserved holidays after a hectic season in Europe and also hope our clubs release us in good time so that we have enough time to work as a team.”

The Braga left back said the Eagles have struggled to play as a team because they have often not had enough time to train together for longer than four days.

“We will now have at least two full weeks before our first game in South Africa and that is a lot because we hardly get that before many of our matches,” he said.

“This will be enough time to really work as a team and the result of this we will see by our first game against Burkina Faso in January 21.”Echiejile said.
