CHAN 2018: Super Eagles Switch Camp Base To Abuja
The Super Eagles home-based team have switched their camp base from Kano to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The team is set for their next phase of preparations for the forthcoming 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) taking place in Morocco from 13th January 2018.
The first phase of preparations ended in Kano on Sunday with the team emerging victorious at the NPFL Invitational Super Six Tournament.
The Eagles team outscored CAF Champions League representatives MFM FC of Lagos 3-2 in the final.
In earlier matches, they drew 0-0 with League Champions Plateau United and pipped two–time African champions Enyimba FC 1-0.
Plateau United of Jos as well as other Nigerian flag-bearers on the continent, Enyimba of Aba and Akwa United of Uyo, alongside the host city’s beloved Kano Pillars took part in the tourney.
After Sunday’s win, Coach Salisu Yusuf told thenff.com that preparations would move into the second phase where some of the lapses seen in the team would be corrected and some fresh players called up.
“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 will be camped at the Bolton White Hotels and Apartments for what promises to be a more intensive phase of training before they jet out to Morocco in the first week of January.
