After a heartwarming goalless draw against the Menas of Niger Republic last Wednesday in Niamey, the Nigerian national side; Super Eagles returned to camp yesterday with home-based team skipper, Chigozie Agbim, the first to arrive camp.
Obviously, leading by example, Agbim strolled into camp unnoticed at about 1pm and was received by Team Coordinator, Emmanuel Atta, who quickly sorted out his accommodation arrangement at the Bolton White Apartment abode of the team.
About an hour after Agbim's arrival came Kano Pillars striker, Sani Sanusi, the one his teammates like to call Ronaldinho. Then there was a deluge of players from all the clubs, with Sunshine Stars and Kano Pillars with four players each still topping the list of clubs with the highest number of invited players.
And following several queries about the psychological readiness of the team, despite the huge pep-talk that coach Keshi delivers daily, Team Psychologist, Robinson Okosun, says there is no cause for alarm as the team is in the best frame of mind for the game against Liberia.
"We have players who are exposed and have been in constant touch with my office. Luckily for me , I also have a Head Coach, who doubles as a super psychologist and motivator to the players, which has made my job easier.
I don't think there should be any fears about the state of mind of our players whether foreign or local based because what we are going for now is to qualify for the Nations Cup and the World Cup and do very well at both tournaments", he declared.
