The home-based Super Eagles players invited for the November 7 friendly against the Black Meteors of Ghana got down to business on Tuesday in Uyo but Coach Stephen Keshi was conspicuously missing during the team’s training exercise.
A press statement from Ben Alaiya the Eagles Media officer said the Big Boss was still away in Abuja attending to some personal issues.
“Head Coach Stephen Okechukwu Keshi was still away in Abuja on some personal issues and he’s scheduled to join the team soonest” a part of the statement from the Eagles Media officer read.
Despite Keshi’s absence, the Eagles training still went on smoothly under the watchful eyes of Assistant Coach, Dan The Bull Amokachi who was ably assisted by Coach Valere Hyandonou and Goalies’ Trainer, Ike Shorunmu.
All 24 players invited for the Ghana friendly took part in session which was said to have lasted a little over 2 hours.
Ex-internationals James Etokebe and Patrick Udoh came to give the team moral support during the morning session, with a sizeable number of football fans in Uyo also joining to watch their team train.
