The wolves players are training with the home-based Super Eagles.
Warri Wolves coach, Solomon Ogbeide, has expressed gratitude to the Super Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi, for inviting three Warri Wolves players to be part the home based Super Eagles team.
The three players are Osadiaye Joseph, Azubuike Egweke and Oghenekaro Eteto. Ogbeide noted that being part of the Super Eagles will further expose them and improve their working rate.
“I am happy for their invitation and will want to thank the Coach for doing the right thing. I am very sure that they will be more exposed and their working rate will improve too. No doubt, if we qualify for a continental assignment, their exposure will go a long way to help the Club,” Ogbeide stated.
Meanwhile, Wolves coach has vowed to feature his first eleven against Spotlight Football Club of Katsina in the round of 32 in the Federation Cup game coming up on Wednesday, next week in Ilorin.
Speaking after the normal training season at the Warri City Stadium during the week, Ogbeide disclosed that the team would move into a closed camp on Friday with 24 players and then, leave for Ilorin on Monday.
“This match is very important to us and we cannot afford to underrate any team especially Spotlight. We are very familiar with them because Warri Wolves edged them out via penalty shootout last season after they equalized in the last minute of the game. They are in the Pro-league and are doing well. Our aim is to play in the final and all hands must be on deck for this match. The team will move into close camping on Friday and from there to Ilorin on Monday. I am going to feature my best eleven because the teams in the lower league are fond of springing surprises,” he said.
