Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has praised the home-based players who have been sweating it out in the team’s training camp in Abuja, ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.
Oliseh took to Twitter to express his feelings after just one week of training with the players.
He wrote: “After one week of training, the home-based are showing lots of promise.”
The home-based players will be joined by their foreign-based counterparts to intensify preparation for the qualifier against Tanzania in Dar es Salam in early September.
An 18-man list foreign-based players was released by Oliseh with the likes of Mikel Obi, Victor Moses and Odion Ighalo overlooked.
The Eagles are currently second behind Egypt on goals difference in their qualifying group.
