Players of the Home-based Super Eagles have expressed worry that the team is yet to commence training for the Super Six tournament starting on December 11, 2017. The players said it may not be the same tale when they reached the West African Football Union Cup final even when the team was not well blended.
The Super Six pre-season tournament which holds from next Monday December 11, 2017 is a build-up competition ahead of the new Nigeria Professional Football League season which kicks off January 14, 2018. The tournament will be contested by Plateau United, MFM, Enyimba, Akwa United, Kano Pillars and the CHAN Eagles.
“The Federation must also help us prepare well for the Super Six and the African Nations Championship (CHAN) tournament,” one of the five Akwa United players in the Home Eagles squad to the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations tournament in Ghana told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“I don’t even know which team I will represent because my club will also feature in the Super Six.”
Another player from Enugu Rangers who also spoke on condition of anonymity said: “We didn’t have enough time to blend well for the WAFU tournament, but we got to the final. I think we should prepare well for the CHAN tournament starting from the Super Six competition so that we can do well at the CHAN tournament.”
