Eagles Set For Multiple Training Sessions In Austria


The Super Eagles will undergo a quick succession of multiple training sessions at their new base in Austria, following a decision by the technical crew to recover lost time the squad had when they could not hit the pitch in London.

The team Eagles did not hold full training on Friday evening, as a result of bad weather in London and spent the while on Sunday resting, after travelling to Austria ahead of Wednesday’s match against Czech Republic.

Subsequently, for the first time since the start of their World Cup final lap on May 23, the national team will hold two training sessions on grass, with the first scheduled to begin at 1030 hours while the evening session starts at 1700 hours.

Monday morning’s workout which lasted for just over one hour was more or less a recovery session, as the players were only involved in running exercises, but they will train fully in the evening, starting from 1700 hours.

Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr said there were no injury worries in camp, meaning all the players named in the 23-man squad list for the World Cup are expected to participate in Monday’s session.

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) were happy that the Eagles were specially welcomed by locals when they arrived at their Avita Resort Base camp in Bad Tatzmannsdorf on Sunday, and the team will fly out to Russia on June 11 after a week in Austria.
