continental club assignments as well as the homecoming of Turkey based striker, Ekigho Ehiosun.
Star players like defender Azubuike Egwueke, midfielder Uche Ossai, striker Sunday Mba, who scored twice against Liberia Lone Star in a friendly, and goalkeeper and skipper, Chigozie Agbim, made things look different in training. Heartland added fillip with keeper Dan Akpeyi and winger Obinna Nwachukwu and effectively the battle for the 17 spots for Lima, Peru has started.
After light workout supervised by coach Sylvanus Okpala, Keshi took charge of the day’s training with novel styles that he hopes will put the players in shape against their South American opponents.
“Any South American team play possession football, they won’t allow you touch the ball but when they know you can match them skill for skill, they respect you. That is what I’m preparing your minds for in Peru,” Keshi told the players.
Ehiosun looked fresh from his exploits in the Turkish league and was quick on the ball when he played for the possibles against the probables, later at training. It was an interesting sight to behold as Keshi assumed the role of referee in the game won by the probables 3-1.
In all, 25 players trained Wednesday and the list is expected to be pruned to 17 by the weekend for the trip to Lima, the Peruvian capital.
