The Super Eagles had a media parley on Wednesday.
Super Eagles stand in skipper, Vincent Enyeama, said he was ready for the tie against Malawi as the team held its media parley on Wednesday morning.
Enyeama declared that he was not in competition with any of the goalies for the number one shirt of the national team. He also gave a hint that he would soon quit the Super Eagles, even as Lazio of Italy midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi, assured that the team will come out clean against Malawi on Saturday.
Enyeama, who spoke first, told journalists that all the three goalkeepers in the national team: himself, Austin Ejide, and Chigozie Agbim, are in the form of their lives and any of them will man the post well if chosen by the national team handlers.
“All of us are good and I must say I am not in competition with any of them neither are they with me. Nigeria is blessed with great talents and it’s always good when you are called up to play,” he said.
Onazi said he and his teammates are fired up for Saturday’s game and assured that the team will not disappoint despite the furore that has been generated ahead of the encounter.
The team trained under rainfall on Wednesday at the UJ Esuene Stadium in Calabar, Nigeria’s preferred tourism destination, with Sports Commissioner, Patrick Ugbe, monitoring proceedings.
Keshi said during training that the team was ready for Malawi, declaring that the focus is not only to win against Malawi but to get to the World Cup Championship in Brazil next year.
Despite the heavy rains that prevented some of the players from joining the Wednesday evening training, only Nnamdi Oduamadi and John Obuh arrived last to the Eagles camp.
