Eagles search for Igiebor



The Super Eagles arrived in Spain this new year's day to prepare for the Nations Cup in Catalonia after having been camped in Faro, Portugal for a week.

Celtic playmaker Rabiu Ibrahim is expected to join his team mates today as he could not make the camp with them in Faro, Portugal because of un-anticipated delays in his flight schedule.

Ikechukwu Uche and Ibrahim will be the last duo to make the Eagles' camp just in time for the clash on Wednesday Jan. 2.

Midfielder Nosa Igiebor who was to have joined up with his team mates in Faro is 'AWOL' as the team's technical crew have no clues regarding his whereabouts.

“We are still waiting for word from Nosa at the moment, so we cannot say he will be in Catalonia or Faro for the game”, Team Secretary, Dayo Enebi Achor.

Wednesday’s match against the Catalonia select managed by Dutch legend Johann Cryuff will be played at the home of La Liga side, Espanyol at 9:00pm Nigerian time.
