Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has arrived Nigeria to begin preparations for Nigeria’s 2019 African Cup of Nations last qualifying game against Seychelles, as well as the international friendly against Egypt this weekend in Asaba.
The Super Eagles Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye, confirmed that the invited players will start arriving the Super Eagles camp in Asaba today, while training will begin tomorrow.
He noted that the Eagles’ boss and his backroom staff will use the two international games to start building the team ahead of the 2019 Nations Cup holding in Egypt.
Seychelles will arrive in Nigeria either on Wednesday or Thursday for the game.
Nigeria Football Federation Secretary General Mohammed Sanusi believes the Asaba pitch will not give the Eagles any problem when they battle the visiting teams this weekend.
“Right now, we have not had any complaint from the coach. Before Asaba was selected for the two games, the NFF as a responsible body had enough conversations with the stakeholders in the game.
“This is not the first time the players are playing an international match on the Asaba pitch,” he declared.
The Super Eagles will host Seychelles in Asaba on March 22 and meet Egypt at the same venue on March 26.
