Power Outage Forces Super Eagles To Cut Short Training Ahead Of AFCON Qualifiers

The senior national team of Nigeria had their first real training session ahead of the 2023 back to back Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers games against Guinea Bissau , OGN reports.

21 players took part in the session that took place at the Moshood Abiola stadium and was supervised by head coach of the team Jose Peseiro and his assistants primarily for the first of the two games against Guinea Bissau which will be held on Friday.

Peseiro and his wards were forced to cut short the session after an hour as it became dark with the public source of power unavailable, the plans to switch to an alternative source failed as the power generating plant at the stadium refused to come on.

OGN also noticed that the team didn’t come to training with their designated team bus, which we gathered is faulty. They came in a white bus hired by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF ) as cover for the team.

They will have another session this morning with 22 players expected to take part following the arrival of top striker Victor Osimhen few minutes after the team’s return from training.
