“I am very impressed with the team. We did not have any elaborate preparation before the Super Six tournament and yet these boys raised their game, improved with every match and won the trophy. I congratulate them but this is the beginning of real hard work for us.

“We will begin the next phase of preparations immediately. We want to also see some new players in certain positions and correct some mistakes we made during some of our games in Kano while strengthening and consolidating on our strong areas.”

The Eagles, who arrived in Abuja from Kano on Monday, are camped at the Bolton White Hotels and Apartments ahead of an intense preparation schedule. 

The 2018 CHAN tournament kicks off in Morocco from January 13, 2018.
