Faro ready for Super Eagles



Nigeria’s national team, the Super Eagles will leave the shores of the country on Thursday for Faro, Portugal for the final phase of preparations for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

The contingent is expected to leave the country through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International airport, Abuja by 5pm for Accra, Ghana from where they would proceed to the Iberian nation.

Nine players from the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) and Fegor Ogude who plays for the Norwegian club Valeranga are the only footballers in the contingent that will leave Nigeria on Thursday.

“We will have our last training session on Thursday morning before we leave for the airport later in the day. We ask Nigerians for their prayers,” spokesman of the Super Eagles, Ben Alaiya told supersport.com.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) through executive committee member, Chris Green also revealed that "logistics have been put in place to ensure that all goes smoothly in Portugal."

“We have ensured that logistics have been put in place to ensure that all goes smoothly in Portugal. There will be no excuse not to give the boys the best of preparations. The first assignment upon arrival will be the friendly game against the Catalonia selected side and we will see how that goes,” Green said.

Nigeria open their 2013 Afcon account against Burkina Faso at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit, on January 21 against Burkina Faso.
