Players and officials of the national team will observe a rest before returning to camp for the second leg of the game against Liberia in Calabar

The Super Eagles were on Sunday officially decamped and are scheduled to resume camping in the first week of October for the October 13 crunch Africa CUp of Nations winner-takes-all tie against the Lone Stars of Liberia in Calabar.

Head coach Stephen Keshi had, after consulting with the NFF leadership, addressed the players at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport in Abuja, when the team returned from Monrovia following their 2-2 draw on Saturday and told them that they can return to their clubs as camp has officially been dissolved.

Those that will be needed for the Liberia return leg match will be notified early, he told the players. Most of the foreign based professionals, including team skipper Joseph Yobo left after the talk and did not make it to the team's Bolton White Apartment camp on Sunday morning.

The team arrived the Abuja Airport at about 6:30am in the morning after a stop-over in Lagos for refueling the IRS Airliner that took them to Monrovia for the match against Liberia.

Team secretary Dayo Enebi Achor said the NFF will take a decision on camping dates and place for the team later this week, but noted that a proposal that will see the home-based players resume camp ahead of their foreign counterparts is already being worked on.
