EXTRA TIME: Super Eagles tour Ismailia ahead of Afcon

The three-time African champions are camped in the Egyptian city before making their 18th appearance in the continental showpiece

After four days of intensive preparation in Egypt, the Super Eagles took a break to explore the city of Ismailia on Friday.

Nigeria started the second phase of their training ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) on Monday after playing to a goalless draw against Zimbabwe last Saturday.

Before facing Senegal on Sunday in their last friendly fixture, Gernot Rohr’s men cruised on the Suez Canal to cool off.
