super Eagles players that are based in the country will resume camp in Abuja preparatory to the 2013 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against the Lone Stars of Liberia on August 18, a top official of the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) has disclosed.
Nigeria’s senior national team dismissed the Amavubi of Rwanda in the last round of qualifier 2-0 on aggregate and with a tie against Liberia in September and October the team will hit camp in mid August with the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) players.
Revealing the information to SportingLife, the Chairman of the NFF Technical Sub Committee, Barrister Christopher Green explained that the GlassHouse chose early camping for the NPL stars to allow them become better prepared for the two legs with their fellow West African country.
“We have the bulk of our Super Eagles here in Nigeria and they are going to begin camping tentatively on August 18 preparatory to the match against Liberia. We hope that within this period we will get a match to play.
“We want them to get a better understanding of themselves which I feel will be of help to them when they face Liberia in Monrovia and in the country after some foreign based must have joined them to have a solid squad,” Green said.
The Eagles missed out on the last edition of the AFCON which took place in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea early this year.
