Nigeria’s Super Eagles rolled into Egypt’s second city, Alexandria as the countdown to the 32nd Africa Cup of Nations hit the home stretch.
The three-time champions moved straight to their Helnan Palestine Hotel on arrival and on Tuesday trained at the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport in the Port city.
President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick, who is also 1st Vice President of CAF and President of AFCON, has challenged the team to stay focused on winning the top prize at Africa’s flagship tournament when visiting the team on Tuesday.
Responding, Captain Mikel John Obi promised that the three-time African champions will be very professional on and off the pitch and do all they can to make the country proud.
