The Super Eagles held another training session on Thursday night, before their Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group D game against Sudan.

Training started at 5pm Nigerian Time; journalists were allowed to feast their eyes on the Super Eagles players for the first fifteen minutes of the workout.

The Eagles ended the session with a two dimensional game, which was closed to the public and press. It ended 2-1.

The team wearing green training jerseys won the 30-minute session and it contained Maduka Okoye, Tyrone Ebuehi, Jamilu Collins, Semi Ajayi, Olisa Ndah, Frank Onyeka, Alex Iwobi, Chidera Ejuke, Peter Olayinka, Umar Sadiq, Henry Onyekuru and Ahmed Musa.

Olympiacos Henry Onyekuru set the ball rolling with the curtain raiser on 6 minutes. The former Monaco winger fired a sweet grounder which left goalkeeper Francis Uzoho stranded.

The team increased the tally through Sadiq Umar who showed predatory instinct to drive home Onyekuru’s pass.

Kelechi Nwakali reduced the tally with a beautiful screamer that Maduka Okoye couldn’t stop.

The Super Eagles will aim to qualify from group D with another game against the Falcons of Jediane (Sudan) at Stade Roumdé Adjia in Garoua.
