Super Eagles are taking no chances ahead of Saturday’s AFCON 2015 qualifying tie against the Red Devils of Congo as the African Champions trained under a heavy rain on Thursday in Calabar.
Head Coach Stephen Keshi, his technical crew and even backroom staff were all out in the rain as the national team filed out with full compliments in their evening training.
The last two players to arrive, Emmanuel Emenike of Fernabahce of Turkey and Inter Milan’s Joel Obi were in full flight and the atmosphere was to say the least enthralling. Though, El-kanemi goalie, David Obiaozor missed, officials say he can come and still be part of the team as he is a material for the future.
At the end of the rain-soaked training, Keshi again said he expects his wards to acquit themselves very well against the Red Devils of Congo on Saturday. The team has changed its training schedule from 4pm local time to 5pm, which is the time the continental soccer ruling body CAF, approved for the match on Saturday.
