Emenike, Mikel, others arrive for Mexico friendly

Mikel was the first to arrive camp

The Fenerbahce of Turkey striker, Emmanuel Emenike, is among the players that have arrived the Atlanta camp of the Super Eagles ahead of Wednesday’s friendly match against Mexico.

According to Ben Alaiya, the Eagles Media Officer, others in camp include Mikel Obi of Chelsea of England who was the first player to arrive; and Monaco of France new boy, Elderson Echejile.

The CHAN Eagles quartet of Ejike Uzoenyi, Ebenezer Odulami, Azubike Egwueke and Shehu Abdullahi are also already in the mix for the Mexico friendly.

According to the Eagles spokesperson, the Nigerian delegation which left Lagos on Sunday night arrived the Atlanta International airport at about 5:05 a.m. local time, which is 12:05 p.m. in Nigeria. After airport formalities, the team of officials and four players were taken to the W. Hotels in the city centre where they will stay for the encounter.

Head Coach, Stephen Keshi joined the team at lunch time.

On Tuesday, the team will have a feel of the Atlanta Dome in its last training session before the game on Wednesday at the same venue. At 8 degrees Celsius, the weather in Atlanta is rather cold for those who came from Nigeria but the foreign based stars seem to like it that way.
