•As Emenike, Obi Complete Squad For Congo Clash –

It’s been raining cat and dog in Calabar, the Cross River State capital as the Super Eagles intensify their training on Wednesday evening ahead of Saturday’s Africa Cup Of Nations qualifier against Congo Brazaville.
Head Coach Stephen Keshi, his technical crew and even backroom staff were all in the rain as the national team filed out with full compliments in Wednesday evening training.
The last two players to arrive, Emmanuel Emenike of Fernabahce of Turkey and Inter Milan’s Joel Obi were in full flight and the atmosphere was very good.
Although, Elkanemi goalkeeper, David Obiaozor missed the session, officials say he can come and still be part of the team since he is a material for the future.
At the end of the rain-soaked training, Keshi reiterated that he expects his team to be focused against the Red Devils of Congo on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the team have changed their training schedule from 4pm local time to 5pm, which is the time the continental soccer ruling body CAF, approved for the match on Saturday.
