Cool It Down, Keshi Tells Eagles

Super Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi has told the players to calm their nerves, as he cancelled their second training session for Monday.
He took the decision after it appeared that the close to three hours morning training session may have taken its toll on the players.
“We have to be cautious not to push the players too hard so that nobody will break down”, Keshi said.
The Eagles, who are presently in camp for the 2014 African Nations Championship, CHAN, will on Wednesday play their second practice match against Niger Tornadoes of Minna at the Mainbowl of the Abuja National Stadium.
“Their first game against Prison FC of Abuja ended 4-1 last weekend. Another game has also been scheduled for Saturday in a bid to toughen the side for the CHAN tourney”, Eagles’ Media Officer, Ben Alaiya said.
Keshi said it would have been great for the squad to play an African country in a tune up match before the start of the tournament, but noted that time factor may not permit that arrangement.
