  • …As Team Coordinator says ‘juju’ talk ploy to distract Eagles


At least 12 Super Eagles players have reported to the team’s Wells Carlton hotel camp in Abuja preparatory to their must- win 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff clash with the Black Stars of Ghana on Friday, March 25 in Kumasi.

As at the time of press yesterday, Captain Ahmed Musa, vice-captain, William Troost-Ekong, Leon Balogun, Oghenekaro Etebo, Semi Ajayi, Ola Aina, Frank Onyeka, Odion Ighalo, Daniel Akpeyi, Shehu abdullahi and Francis Uzoho were the twelve players in the camp of the three-time African champions.

The late arrival of most of the 25 invited players for the double header is not unconnected with their club’s engagements over the week.

The Coordinator of the Super Eagles, Patrick Pascal told Daily Trust that later today, most of the players would be in camp and the team’s recovery training would commence.

He said those who are already in camp will continue to work out in the gym while waiting for the rest of their team mates to join them.

He, however, said considering that most of the players are active in their clubs, there won’t be any serious training since both matches would be played under one week.

“By tomorrow (today) most of the players will be in camp. Some are going to arrive later tonight (last night) while some will fly on Tuesday morning.

“I don’t think there will be intensive training for the team because almost every player is actively engaged in his club. It will just be recovery sessions like the one that will be held tomorrow (today) at the same time we would be playing our match in Ghana.”

The Chairman of Bauchi State Football Association also laughed off the news that the Black Stars are going to use ‘juju’ to beat the Super Eagles.

He said there is nothing like ‘Juju’ in football so the Super Eagles are not going to fall victim to the antics of their opponents.

“I laugh when I hear people talk about ‘juju’ in football. If Ghana have ‘juju’ that is working for them, why were they beaten by ordinary Comoros in Cameroon?

“Super Eagles are not going to be distracted by such things. We are focused on winning the match in Kumasi,” said the former international.
