AFCON Qualifiers: Two Players Exempted, One trains alone, as Super Eagles hold first Practice session ahead of Sierra Leone Clash


The Super Eagles trained, Monday, at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Sierra Leone this weekend.

A total of 19 players have reported to the Super Eagles camp, and all were part of the rigorous training session, with the exception of Ebube Duru and Divine Nwachukwu, who played in Sunday’s NPL Super 6 final fixtures for their respective clubs.


Zaidu Sanusi was seen stretching alone, but later joined the squad as they continued their drills before the tactical session.

Victor Sochima of Rivers United and Olorunleke Ojo also took part in the practice session albeit they played 24 hours prior in the NPL Playoffs.

Everyone looked to be in good shape except Ebube Duru, who seemed to have some discomfort in his thigh.

The Right back was checked by the medics, before he walked off and into the shades with an ice bag.
