Nigeria shuts door on Afcon trials



Nigeria are expected to end any kind of experimentation with their team to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in December.

Head coach of Nigeria's Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi has made it clear that once the team's camp for the Afcon opens on December 17, no new players will be called up.

Keshi said he will stick to only players that will get the chance to feature for Nigeria at the 2013 Afcon in South Africa.

"By December 17 the camp for the preparation to the Nations Cup will open. At that time we will only stick to a handful number of players who will be part of the Nations Cup proper.

"There will be no room for new players neither will there be room for experimenting as we will plan towards the Nations Cup. Between December and January we will have just a month to prepare and we will only need to stick to players who will fit into our plans for the Nations Cup," said Keshi.

The Nigerian manager has picked Faro in Portugal as the camp venue for his team's pre-Afcon exercise.
