Four invited Nigerian players will be missing from training.
Injured Super Eagles midfielder, Uche Kalu, will on Sunday depart the Faro, Portugal, camp of the Eagles for Turkey to take care of the groin injury suffered while training with the national team, PREMIUM TIMES has gathered.
The Media Officer to the Eagles, Ben Alaiya, stated that officials of Riezespor, Uche Kalu’s second division club in Turkey, have been calling for the return of the player after learning that he has cupped a knock that has seen him lost out in the squad to this month’s Africa Cup of Nations.
“The situation with Uche Kalu is still very bad, I expect that anytime from now he will leave camp, his club has been calling make inquiries about him they said they want him back to so as to access the level of the injury, so before the end of the day (Sunday) Uche Kalu will leave camp,” Alaiya said from Faro on Sunday morning
Meanwhile, the Super Eagles will have two training sessions on Sunday at their Faro Camp as preparations hot up for the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
The Eagles have been observing just a training session in the evening in the past days but with a full complement of players now at the disposal of the Technical crew, the team will literally be upping their game.
“The team will be training twice today; in the morning and the evening and that’s how it will be on Monday and Tuesday. The spokesman for the national team stated.
According to Alaiya all the invited players but four will part of the training schedule. The omissions are injured Uche Kalu; Ikechukwu Uche, who is yet to arrive as at the time of filing this report; and the duo of Danny Shittu and Shola Ameobi who declined the call up to the Eagles camp
