CHAN Eagles to train in South Africa
Written by admin on December 7, 2015
Nigeria will train in Pretoria, South Africa, to prepare for next year’s CHAN in Rwanda as against a proposal by coach Sunday Oliseh to set up a training camp in Tanzania.
Officials said the change was necessitated because Tanzania do not have a standard artificial pitch, which is what will be used in Rwanda during the tournament proper. The Eagles are expected to set up a training base in Pretoria later this month.
Nigeria are appearing for their second CHAN after they debuted at the tournament reserved for players featuring in their various domestic leagues.
They are drawn alongside Niger Republic, Tunisia, and Guinea. The competition kicks-off on January sixteen in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.
