Int’l Friendly: Super Eagles officials arrive Austria


The Super Eagles’ camp will open today in Vienna, Austria ahead of Nigeria’s international friendly matches against Algeria and Tunisia this weekend.

The warm-up games are expected to keep the Eagles in top shape for the African Cup of Nations scheduled for November.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said the players are expected to start arriving camp today after representing their clubs in their league matches at the weekend.

Super Eagles Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye, disclosed that some NFF officials and assistant coaches Alloy Agu and Joseph Yobo arrived in Austria to join the team’s manager, Gernot Rohr, preparing the camp ahead of the players’ arrival.

He also said the players are all fit for the task, adding, however, that the doctors would still examine them on arrival to camp.

“Training will start on Tuesday once the coaches get enough number of players. Some of the invited players played league games for their clubs at the weekend, so the coaches will put that into consideration on the players’ arrival schedules. Every arrangement for the game is taken care of,” he said.
