Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr is set to commence closed training with his squad on Thursday, as he outlines his technical plans for Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya.
Foootballlive.ng gathered that Rohr informed officials at Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) of his training schedule for Saturday’s first leg of a double-fixture between the Eagles and Libya.
Consequently, the NFF on Monday disclosed that expectant soccer fans would be allowed to watch the Eagles’ training for only two days during their preparations for Saturday’s first leg against Libya.
The NFF also stated that fans will be allowed to watch the team train on Tuesday and Wednesday this week but added that the Eagles’ sessions on Thursday and Friday will hold behind closed doors.
For the final training on Friday, accredited journalists would be allowed to film the first fifteen minutes of the Eagles’ final at the match venue, Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.
The NFF also confirmed that the game will kick at 4pm on Saturday, with match officials from DR Congo at the centre and running the lines.
