Super Eagles, Nigeria
With Nigeria's complete 25-man preliminary squad in Asaba, we showcase how hard they're working behind the scenes

The Super Eagles are now ready to take their Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) preparations up a level.

You can see they mean business from these photos and videos posted by the official Super Eagles Twitter account, a few players and media in Asaba.

There's also a video by Nigeria star Leon Balogun on how he's been able to get back in shape.

Finally, on the lighter side, there's a music video posted in the hope of inspiring the Super Eagles. Let's hope this video by "African Mr Nobody" works for the Nigerian football team.

Gernot Rohr’s side will lock horns against Afcon-bound Zimbabwe on Saturday at the Stephen Keshi Stadium before travelling to Egypt where they will take on Senegal in another friendly encounter on June 16.

Nigeria are in Group B of the tournament and they will begin their campaign against Burundi in Alexandria on June 22.

They will later play against Guinea on June 26 and Madagascar on June 30.
