Keshi's Eagles tackle Flying Eagles on Friday


Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, and his Flying Eagles counterpart, John Sam Obuh, have set up a mouth-watering friendly between

both sides on Friday at the Practice Pitch of the National Stadium in Abuja.

Keshi, who made the announcement to the players before the commencement of Tuesday training, said he expects 100 per cent dominance from the senior national team, even as he also advised the players to take it easy on the day. It is on record that the Flying Eagles have never lost to the

Super Eagles in any friendly between both sides.

Ahead of Friday’s tune up match, the only apparent weakness that the Super Eagles will likely suffer will be the fact that of the three invited

goalkeepers to camp only Okemute Odah of Sharks of Port Harcourt is available as Chigozie Agbim of Warri Wolves and Dan Akpeyi of Heartland of Owerri are away on continental assignments. But national team’s goalkeeper’s trainer, Ike Shorunmu, who has been drilling Odah, assured that the goalkeeper will be up to the task of warding off the strikers of the junior national team on Friday.
