The Super Eagles of Nigeria will commence training sessions tomorrow, September 1, in preparation for the all-important Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier away to Tanzania.
The assistant coach of the team, Salisu Yusuf, told journalists in Abuja that by then, all invited players from the domestic league and their colleagues abroad would have made their way to the federal capital, Abuja.
He said:“Players in the Nigeria league and those in Europe have matches on Sunday and so I do not expect us to resume training earlier than Tuesday when all the players would have arrived the previous day,”he said.
The team is scheduled to depart Abuja for Dar es Salaam this Thursday and then play the Taifa Stars of Tanzania next weekend.[post_ad]
“We will only have a handful of training, but that should not be a problem because all the players are playing for their various clubs. We just have to let them know how we want them to play,”Yusuf said.
Nigeria defeated Chad 2-nilin their first game which was played in Kaduna on June 13.
