Then as the training was coming to an end, Enyimba pair of Peter Onyekachi and Kingsley Sokari arrived the Mainbowl of the National Stadium, Abuja after helping their club secure an away 1-0 victory against their Benin Republic opponents over the weekend.
Addressing the players coach Samson Siasia thanked the players for putting the interest of the nation ahead of their personal comfort, adding that some players would have stayed back in their clubs to rest.
He reminded the players that the game between them and Gabon is not over “if we can beat them 1-4 at their backyard then let us know that they will also want to do same here.
