Thursday’s planned break for home- based Super Eagles players have been shelved by the Nigeria Football Federation and the technical crew of the national team.
Officials of the team said the need for proper bonding of the team and for the team to have a character of oneness informed the decision not to go on break for four days.
The coaches, led by Stephen Keshi, also feels that should they be allowed to proceed on holidays, the work that had been done on the players would be lost by the time they return.
The team is now to remain in camp till January 15 when they should play an international friendly as the January 7, date for a friendly is not certain yet.
Already, Liberia is being touted as the Eagles likely opponents.
The team will now leave camp January 17 to regroup in February for the battle of Kigali.
