Nigeria: ANC Qualifiers - Super Eagles Begins Training On Monday

The national football team (Super Eagles) will resume training in Abuja on Monday morning ahead of its second leg encounter with Rwanda in an Africa Nations Cup qualifier.

The team arrived from Blantyre, Malawi, Sunday, after a 1-1 draw in a World Cup qualifier last Saturday.

Head Coach, Stephen Keshi told the players after a late lunch at the Bolton White Hotel, that the morning training will involve players who played no part in the

encounter against Malawi, save for one.

However, the evening training will involve all the players and officials of the team by 4pm on Monday.

The Nigerian side returned to the country Sunday afternoon via a chartered Chanchangi 737 Airliner, still sulking from the late draw that Malawi snatched on Saturday.

Depart for Calabar Tuesday

According to the team's Media Officer, Ben Alaiya, it will depart for Calabar on Tuesday where it will engage the Wasps of Rwanda and will again camp at the Metropolitan Hotel in the city.

Some of the players dropped from the Malawi party are expected to join the team in Calabar for the encounter against Rwanda on Saturday in the Canaan City.
