WorldStage Newsonline-- Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi and his Flying Eagles counterpart, John Sam Obuh, have set up a friendly between both sides on Friday at the Practice Pitch of the National Stadium in Abuja.
Keshi who made the announcement to the players before the commencement of Tuesday training said, he expected 100 per cent dominance from the senior national team, even as he also advised the players to take it easy during the match.
Flying Eagles Media Officer, Samm Audu, excitedly told his counterpart in the Super Eagles, Ben Alaiya that “it’s on record, that the Flying Eagles have never lost to the Super Eagles in any friendly and I hope we continue to keep that record on Friday”.
In response, Alaiya said, “we shall see when Friday comes.”
The only apparent weakness that the Super Eagles will suffer on Friday will be the fact that of the three invited goalkeepers to camp, only Okemute Odah of Sharks of Port Harcourt is available as Chigozie Agbim of Warri Wolves and Dan Akpeyi of Heartland of Owerri are away on continental assignments. However, national team’s goalkeeper’s trainer, Ike Shorunmu, who has been drilling Odah, assured that the goalkeeper will be up to the task of warding off the strikers of the junior national team on Friday.
