Eagles Converge in Calabar on September 2 For Malawi.

Super Eagles will regroup in Calabar on September 2 ahead of the World Cup qualifier against the Flames of Malawi as the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has now ruled out the chances of camping the home-based players, who were due to assemble in Abuja this weekend, beforehand.

Nigeria engages Malawi in their final 2014 World Cup qualifying game in Calabar on September 7 and coach Stephen Keshi had been told to trim his 40-man party for the encounter down to 23 as NFF wants him to focus on the immediate task at hand.

All the players will now report to camp on the new date in Calabar.

“What do you want me to say,” Keshi told KickOffNigeria.com when asked if the directive would have an adverse effect on his training programs.

“They say they don’t want us to camp, so we will not have a camp.

“As long as we play our game and do the things we have been working on in practice, we will come out on top,” Keshi added.

Having racked up 7 points, Malawi trail Nigeria who are on nine points and will have to avoid defeat to qualify for the playoff round of the 2014 World Cup qualifying series.

  1. It’s fairly obvious that the NFF need to either back the coach 100% or step back and quit their messing around with his plans. Ever since the Afcon episode the ‘vibes’ and feedback has not convinced anyone. They might have a hidden agenda but the danger is crystal clear. Should Keshi and his boys somehow blow this opportunity then

Should Keshi and his boys somehow blow this opportunity and not qualify for WC 2014 then the knives will surely be out for the ‘Big Boss’… Imagine that nonsense! Let him be, he’s doing a grand job!!

    • @AkpoTek50 you are right the idiots sit in their offices & pass new rules & roles everyday. I hope they don’t frustrate S. Keshi, because the guy is really working hard. I think he will probably set the record of Nigeria’s most hard working and committed coach.

      The guy is just too passionate about everything, I doff my hat for him & he will always remain one of my most cherished Nigerians.
