The Super Eagles’ Sunday training has been rescheduled to 6-8pm from 5-7pm by CAF.
This means the planned 15-minute media access will now hold from 6pm, according to the team’s Media Officer Mr Babafemi Raji.
Nigeria is led by Augustine Eguavoen, who was on-field captain when the Eagles won the title in Tunisia in 1994, and then coached the Eagles to third place in Egypt 12 years later. In 2004, he was assistant to Coach Christian Chukwu when the Eagles picked up the bronze medals in Tunisia.
Soft–spoken but tactically astute, Eguavoen is the only man to have coached Nigeria to win all three group phase matches at the AFCON – when they defeated Ghana, Zimbabwe and Senegal in Port Said at the 2006 finals in Egypt. His team also bundled out Cup holders Tunisia after a pulsating penalty shootout in the quarter finals.
Super Eagles will kick start their tournament against giants Egypt on Tuesday, January 11 before taking on Sudan and Guinea Bissau in the other Group D matches.
