2019 AFCON Qualifier: Eagles Open Camp In Asaba
Written by thrilliant on November 12, 2018
The Super Eagles will on Monday open their training camp in Asaba, Delta State ahead of the all-important AFCON 2019 qualifying tie against South Africa at the FNB Stadium Johannesburg on the 17th of this month.
The national team official Twitter handle: @NGSuperEagles, tweeted that only Wednesday’s training session is open, while the other sessions will be closed.
The handle also confirmed that a media parley is slated for November 19 ahead of the international friendly against Uganda.
Nigeria tops Group E with nine points and only need three points to secure a place in next year’s tournament, but South Africa have a mountain to climb.
Stuart Baxter’s men are second in the table, one point off Nigeria, but face a tough test against the three-time African winners and a dodged Libya side on March 22, 2019.
South Africa want their destiny in their own hands and know a win against Nigeria will almost certainly guarantee a ticket for the Afcon in Cameroon.
