The 2014 African Nations Championship Most Valuable Player, Ejike Uzoenyi, alongside Almeria midfielder Ramon Azeez and Belgium-based Michael Uchebo were impressive during the Super Eagles training on Tuesday ahead of the friendly game against Scotland on Wednesday (today).
Coach Stephen Keshi will certainly be in good mood as the team’s more established players also gave a good account of themselves at the Craven Cottage training pitch under chilly conditions, as the fight for the 2014 World Cup places intensified.
Forward Nnamdi Oduamadi, who missed the first training session of the team, arrived in camp after lunch time yesterday after a visa mix-up but France-based Sunday Mba, remained the only player yet to join the team in London.
There are doubts over the ability of the midfielder, who scored the winner to hand the Eagles a third Africa Cup of Nations title last year, to arrive in time for the match against the Scots.
Meanwhile, players have hailed the training session, which lasted over two hours.
“You don’t play the World Cup every year and time,” goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama said.
Defender Azubuike Egwuekwe said, “The training was tough and good.”
Keshi said the players needed the session to get them ready for the task of playing against the best teams at the World Cup in Brazil.
