Igiebor, Uche set for Catalonia



The trio of Rabiu Danda Ibrahim, Nosa Igiebor and Ikechukwu Uche have teamed up with Nigeria's Super Eagles in Spain for Wednesday's match against Catalonia.

The three players joined the Nigerian squad on New Year's Day and took part in the team's only training session ahead of the tune-up game at at the Estadi Cornella-El Prat.

There were initial reports ruling out Real Betis' midfielder, Igiebor but the presence of the player has doused that doubt.

"It's a test game, at the same time massive. It's good to see some of our players like Ike Uche, Nosa and Rabiu turn up here for the game," Keshi said to supersport.com.

But the trip of the Nigerian squad witnessed a bit of delay at the Faro airport in Portugal.

"The team departed their Browns Resort and Sports Centre camp (in Faro) on schedule at 4am, Portuguese time, which is 5am Nigerian time, but experienced little delay at the Faro airport, but eventually arrived Lisbon at some minutes after 9am.

"The flight took just 35 minutes. After immigration formalities the team set out for Barcelona and arrived the city at about 11:20am Spanish time," stated spokesman of the Nigerian squad, Ben Alaiya.
