Two former Super Eagles stars, Nwankwo Kanu and Victor Okechukwu Agali were at the team’s training session on Friday evening as the players intensified preparations ahead of Sunday’s AFCON 2019 semifinal clash against the Desert Foxes of Algeria, Completesports.com reports.
Gernot Rohr’s men had the training session at the Aero Sport Club which is a stone throw from their Cairo Meridien Hotel base as against the Chams Sports Centre where they had trained since their arrival in Cairo from Alexandria.
Kanu and Agali watched closely the training session, a move that will be a boost to the players ahead of the crucial clash.
