Nigeria: Keshi, NFF to Meet On Nations Cup Monday

Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi will on Monday meet with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) technical committee members to draw up a programme towards the country's successful outing at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Disclosing this at a media parley with reporters in Abuja yesterday, NFF Assistant Director (Media) Ademola Olajire said Keshi, who is away in the US will return on Saturday and hold talks with the NFF chiefs before the Super Eagles camp opens on December 17.

He also revealed that beside the international friendly match against a Catalonia selected side on January 2, the Eagles will play two other friendly matches against yet to be known countries before leaving the Faro camp on January 17 for Johannesburg for the Nations Cup proper.

Similarly, Olajire said the Golden Eaglets, who picked the ticket to the 2013 African U-17 Championship in Morocco, will start local camping in February, before going for another foreign camp in March to sharpen their skills ahead of the African cadet soccer fiesta, which holds in Morocco next April.
