Nigeria: 'Eagles to Resume Camping First Week of March'

The Super Eagles will, in the first week of March, resume camping for the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Kenya, which is slated for the U. J. Esuene Stadium, Calabar on Saturday, 23rd March, 2013.

NFF General Secretary, Musa Amadu confirmed on Tuesday that the home boys will hit camp two weeks before the arrival of the overseas-based professionals one week to the crucial game.

"Now that we are the champions of Africa, we know that every team will prepare much harder whenever they are to play Nigeria. We don't want to leave ourselves open to any sucker punch. Getting to the top and staying there requires a lot of hard work," Amadu said.

Super Eagles' Head Coach Stephen Keshi is expected to release the list of his pick for the match after a meeting with the NFF Technical Committee.

African champions Nigeria currently top the Group F of the African series for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, with four points from a 1-0 home defeat of Namibia and a 1-1 draw against Malawi in Blantyre in June 2012.
