One of the major highlight of the Super Eagles training session which was held behind close door was the act of shooting, with the players coming up against the goalkeepers of the team.
Leicester City newbie Kelechi Iheanacho came out top in terms of shooting with precision as almost all of his efforts settled in the back of the net despite minimal force, accuracy was his strength during the drills.
Hapoel Be’er Sheva Anthony Nwakaeme caught the eyes with his shooting as well, especially for the power his shooting carries which made it hard for the goalkeepers even though he didn’t get to score with most of his efforts.
His club mate John Ogu also impressed with his customary left foot shots troubling the goalkeepers particularly Dele Alampasu, who although was impressive failed to keep out an unstoppable pile driver from Ogu during the drills.
As expected Wilfred Ndidi made a positive impression as well with one of his ferocious strikes coming off the woodwork after the goalkeeper has been beaten in the shooting drills.
Coach Gernot Rohr will be hoping the players maintain their sharpness ahead of tomorrow’s tie against Cameroon, which could determine the leadership of the group.
