CHAN 2018: Eagles depart for Tangier

By Chidera Akalonu

Nigeria’s trophy-hunting Home-based senior team will depart for Tangier by road today ahead of their opening Group C clash against Rwanda in Tangier on Monday night.

The Eagles on Wednessday night held Cameroon to a goalless draw in a friendly. It was a very physical contest as tackles flew from all directions.

“It was a good practice game, it was not about the result but how the players performed,” said team spokesman Toyin Ibitoye. “It was a very physical game as both teams went for it, good for us, this was more than just a friendly. But so far, no injury to worry about.

“The game showed that the tournament won’t be a stroll in the park.

“The boys are hungry to do well, they are motivated to deliver with the World Cup on the horizon.”

The trip to Tangier is two hours by road.
