The Super Eagles of Nigeria have had their first training on Wednesday night, September 5, ahead of their 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles.
Nigeria who have won the African Nations Cup three times missed the the last two editions, and the players are now ready to redeem themselves by picking the ticket to Cameroon next year.
Gernot Rohr's men will face hosts Seychelles in their second Group E game on Saturday, September 8, and the Eagles have had a taste of how the pitch will be for them on match-day.
Meanwhile, Nigeria are yet to pick a point in Group E in the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers after losing their first game at home in June 2017 against South Africa.
Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr announced his 24-man list of players that will face Seychelles in a must win Afcon qualifier.
This will be the first time the Nigerian team will be playing a competitive match since losing out of the group stages at the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi has excused himself from the encounter while Victor Moses recently retired from national team duties.
