Uzoenyi’ll Build On CHAN Award

Super Eagles winger, Ejike Uzoenyi, who was named Man of the Match, in the 4-2 win over Mozambique on Wednesday, says the award will spur the team to greater heights at the ongoing tourney in South Africa.
Speaking after he received the award, the petit Rangers International of Enugu star said he was a bit surprised at being named the star man of the game, but added that the award will not have been possible if his teammates had not been very effective also in the encounter.
“This award is for the entire team and I hope we go all the way and win this tournament for Nigerians”, he said.
The Super Eagles did not take a break as the team were back in training on Thursday evening. Midfielder Ikenna Ene Paul and defence ace, Benjamin Francis are still not fit yet for full training due to hamstring and knee problems but the team doctors are working round the clock to ensure that they get back well in the course of the tournament.
Coach Stephen Keshi said, it’s not looking too good but added that the team came to the tournament with 23 players and the others should be able to hold their own against any opposition.
