Super Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi, has said the team is focused and ready for the crucial make-or-mar African Nations Cup qualifier against Congo-Brazzaville in Pointe Noire on Saturday.

The African champions had started full training in preparation for the clash against the Red Devils in Pointe Noire, SL10.ng reports.

It was a full house as all 23 invited players except Captain Vincent Enyeama and Ikechukwu Uche were present for the training session which took place at the FIFA Goal Project Technical Centre in Abuja.

John Mikel Obi, Emmanuel Emenike and Emem Uduok gave a good account of themselves as they all scored in a warm-up exercise.

Keshi, who spoke to journalists after the training, expressed confidence in the ability of the team, adding that he was positive about their fitness and readiness for the clash.

“What I saw this evening is encouraging and I just hope it continues that way.
“The boys are focused and of course they know why they are here, it’s business as usual and so we have to go and do what we need to do.
“We just have to be ready. This is African football.
“It is not European football and so I always tell my players that once they leave Europe they must switch from the European to African mentality,” SL10.ng quoted the coach as saying to journalists.

The Super Eagles will leave for Pointe Noire on Thursday for Saturday’s crunch game.

Nigeria has four points from four matches, Sudan is at the bottom of the Group A table with three points, while South Africa leads the group with eight points followed by Congo Brazzaville with seven points.
