Eagles Ready For Battle As All Players Hit Camp Ahead Of Friendly With Swaziland

As The Super Eagles prepare for Friday’s crucial encounter against Swaziland, all 24 players including returnee-striker, Obafemi Martins are present in camp.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) revealed that the players have started working on tactics that would be unleashed against the Sihlangu Semnikati of Swaziland on Friday November 13.

Those in camp include Ahmed Musa (Captain), goalkeepers Carl Ikeme, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Dele Alampasu, defenders Efe Ambrose, Austin Oboroakpo, Chima Akas, Jamiu Alimi, Kalu Orji, Godfrey Oboabona, Wilfred Ndidi and Elderson Echiejile, midfielders Paul Onobi, Mikel Obi, Sylvester Igbonu and Rabiu Ibrahim, and forwards Odion Ighalo, Ezekiel Bassey, Kelechi Iheanacho, Alex Iwobi and Moses Simon.

Others are Abdullahi Shehu, Ogenyi Onazi returnee-striker Obafemi Martins who joined the team Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, in a telephone conversation monitored on Channels TV, the media officer of the team explained that the boys are fully in good shape ahead of the epic encounter.

“We are already in swing-mood. We want to hit the camp running because there is no more time to waste. The FIFA windows these days are so tight and so close that you don’t have time to waste.”

“Imagine, we will play away on Friday and come back for the return-leg on Tuesday. We will put everything we have into the game. The coaches have told everybody, this is a World Cup Qualifier, and we don’t have to take our opponents for granted.

“We are traveling very early on Thursday as Swaziland is about 5 to 6 hours. Hopefully we will get there by Thursday afternoon; rest for 2-3 hours and then train 7pm the match time Thursday for the big game the following day.”

The Super Eagles will play a very crucial game away to Swaziland on Friday November 13 and then return to the Adokiye Amasiemaka Stadium, Port Harcourt on Tuesday November 17, for the return leg.
