AFCON 2015 Qualifiers: Super Eagles camp opens Monday

The Super Eagles camp will be opened on Monday in Calabar for early preparations towards the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

He said players are expected to start arriving camp by Monday, September 1, five days to the team’s first match.

“The camp will be thrown open by Monday in Calabar. The coach will come back to Nigeria this weekend from his holidays in the United States. The local boys are expected to arrive first,” he said.

Nigeria has been scheduled to play Congo or Rwanda pending the hearing on the Rwanda national team’s case with the Confederation of African Football, CAF, on Sunday.

According to, the Congolese had contested the eligibility of a player fielded by Rwanda, Birori Dady.

Congo claimed that Dady plays for AS Vita Club of Kinshasa with Congolese (DRC) passport as Etekiama Agiti Tady, and claiming a different age.

The Congolese head coach also appealed to CAF to choose another match venue because of the Ebola epidemic but the plea was thrown out by the continental body.

Nigeria, the defending champion, will play her first qualifying match on September 6, in Calabar.

Nigeria is grouped with Rwanda/Congo, Sudan and South Africa for the 2015 tournament which holds in Morocco.

    Oga this your grammar is very plenty. When the full action begins you can come back and speak your grammar , for now we will wait and see what happens and i am sure by then Mr Jona will be in his village. We will not take the siddon look approach to our government going forward or shove aside important national issues just because we voted for GMB. The destiny of this nation is not an issue of their camp vs our camp , we will speak out for what is right and not play politics or sentiments with issues.
