Super Eagles begin training in Calabar

The national team camp is in high spirit as preparations commenced for the weekend’s game against Congo on Tuesday morning

Coach Stephen Keshi took charge of his first training session with the Super Eagles ahead of their upcoming 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Tuesday morning.

The team had a light work out at the University of Calabar football pitch overseen by the technical crew including assistant coaches Daniel Amokachi and Valere Houandinou as well as goalkeeper coach Ike Shorunmu.

Pending the finalization of his new contract, Keshi agreed to take charge of the team for the matches against Congo and South Africa as the Eagles hope to defend the title they won in Johannesburg in February 2013.

There are indications that El Kanemi goalkeeper David Obiazor has been invited to replace team captain Vincent Enyeama, who was excused for him to attend to family issues.

While players continue to arrive in camp, the team will hold another training on Tuesday evening.
