Players of the Super Eagles of Nigeria had a feel of the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium ahead of Sunday World Cup 2018 qualifiers against the Chipolopolo of Zambia.
The session which was done behind close doors had the players on a sprint of light jog to shake off the stress of jet lag after arriving the country today, just over 24 hours to tomorrow’s clash.
As the training progressed with technical drills, players of the squad were concerned about two things ahead of tomorrow’s game according to one of the players who spoke with Owngoalnigeria.com.
” The playing surface is about the worst I have seen. Although it is made of natural grass but the pitch has contours almost everywhere. Very bumpy and hard. We managed to pull through without any injury” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” Secondly the weather wasn’t friendly at all players like Alex Iwobi, Mikel Obi and Kelechi Iheanacho kept on drinking water. Worst still we are playing by 2:30pm Zambian time, which is 1:30pm Nigerian time.
” Bar this two things, we have no problem. Please all we need from Nigerians is support and prayers, by the grace of God, we will make Nigerians proud”.
