SPORT Nige­ria plan over­seas camp for CHAN Ea­gles

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Nige­ria’s home-based Su­per Ea­gles are to set up a train­ing camp over­seas prior to the kick-off of the CHAN in Rwanda in Jan­uary, of­fi­cials have dis­closed.

Nige­ria brushed aside Burk­ina Faso 2-0 on ag­gre­gate to join 13 other coun­tries for the CHAN, which be­gins on Jan­uary 16 in Ki­gali.

The Nige­ria Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion (NFF) are now work­ing on proper build-up for the team head­ing to Rwanda.

“The plan is to the team to train in a coun­try close to Rwanda be­fore the com­pe­ti­tion,” a top of­fi­cial re­vealed.

“Tan­za­nia would have been a suit­able site but it is too ex­pen­sive. We are sure a more def­i­nite plan will be fi­nalised very soon.”

This will be Nige­ria’s sec­ond ap­pear­ance at the tour­na­ment re­served for play­ers who ply their trade in their home leagues.

Last year, Nige­ria fin­ished third on their de­but in South Africa.
