Due to the short winter break some of the big leagues in Europe had in December, most of the Super Eagles stars who play in Europe looked refreshed in training yesterday. Those who play in the Premier League like Iheanacho, Ndidi and Iwobi might not have had a break in December due to the intense fixture list the league has but they were still in perfect physical condition.
The training session was a little intense as the new coach tries to pass his ideology to the players before the AFCON kicks off in a few days. Nigeria’s first game is against another African big team, Egypt.
Hopes are high that the Super Eagles will impress the nation in the AFCON tournament kicking off in a few days under the leadership of Jose Peseiro. Peseiro knows his craft well and he will make good use of the players available to him. We might be missing the likes of Emmanuel Dennis and Victor Osimhen but the squad we have is good enough to compete with any team in Africa.
