According to a tweet on the official Twitter handle of the Super Eagles the session will be closed from the media and the fans.

“News Alert. We will have only one training session tomorrow, Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba…and it will be CLOSED!,” the Tweet stated.

“We apologize for, and regret, all inconveniences caused by our change of plans. Please bear with us.”

Meanwhile, 22 players took part in the team’s first training session at the Stephen Keshi Stadium Asaba on Tuesday evening as the Super Eagles stepped into gear for Saturday’s encounter against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

Girondin Bordeaux winger, Samuel Kalu is expected to arrive camp on Wednesday.

The team is will fly out of the country on Thursday aboard an Air Max charter flight from the Benin City Airport to Johannesburg for the game on Saturday.

The three-time African champions need just one point from Saturday’s encounter to be sure of a slot at 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations in Cameroon.


  • Point of correction, we need three points from the encounter to qualify and teach south Africans lesson.

    God bless Nigeria.

    Hmmm……and there goes Samuel Kalu’s starting shirt on saturday. I hope whatever stopped him from arriving camp on tuesday was sanctioned by the coaches…!

    • The Bordeaux fan website is suggesting that he may be injured. But it’s a suggestion not a statement of fact 

      • Big D, according to ScoreNigeria.com : ‘Super Eagles officials have disclosed that Bordeaux winger Samuel Kalu has been held back at his base in France because he is waiting for his South Africa visa to be issue’.

        • @deo, yes just seen that now. I was up till 3sm and that was the last news I saw (Girondins dot com).

          He’ll need to buck up, because this delay will mean he doesn’t get a starting slot for sure

          If that is the case….he is as good as being out of the game..! He may probably get a role in the friendly match against Uganda.
