Super Eagles camp for the African Nations Cup double header against Sudan on October 11 and 15 respectively will open in Abuja on Monday, October 5 with the technical crew and his backroom staff.
According to Head coach of the team, Stephen Keshi, the players are expected to start arriving camp from Monday, October 6 to enable them have at least three days of training before flying to Khartoum, capital of Sudan for the first leg of the two legged matches.
“I expect all the players to be available for training in Abuja before we depart for the game. All the players have assured me that they would be available for the games and would try to come early,” says Keshi.
“They know the importance of the games and we cannot afford not to be in Morocco to defend our title. We are not unaware of the precarious position we found ourselves in the fight to qualify for Afcon but we shall scale through by the grace of God” he quipped.
He said that if beating Sudan is what the Super Eagles need to qualify for the African Nations Cup, then they have no choice than to do just that by winning the two fixtures to remain in contention.
