How Super Eagles Team A, B & C Lined Up In Training; Aina & Idowu Score BeautiesPublished: May 25, 2018
Four players Wilfred Ndidi, Moses Simon, Odion Ighalo and William Troost-Ekong did not take part in Friday's practice match during the Super Eagles workout at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium as a result of fitness concerns and fatigue.
After the usual stretching and jogging exercises, Rohr split the squad into three groups for games on a reduced sized pitch.
Team A had goalkeeper Francis Uzoho, John Obi Mikel, Joel Obi, Brian Idowu, Abdullahi Shehu, Chidozie Awaziem, Kenneth Omeruo and Oghenekaro Etebo.
The outfielders for Team B were Kelechi Iheanacho, Junior Lokosa, Ahmed Musa, Ola Aina, Stephen Eze, Tyronne Ebuehi and Uche Ugbo with Ikechukwu Ezenwa in goal.
Goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, John Ogu, Leon Balogun, Elderson Echiejile, Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo, Mikel Agu, Alex Iwobi and Eddy Onazi played for Team C.
The goalkeepers were largely moved around teams as the matches progressed and Plateau United's Dele Ajiboye later subbed in for Ezenwa.
The first match was between Team A and B with Team A winning 4-1 and Idowu scoring two goals in almost a similar fashion to his goal on his debut against Argentina. The goals were fierce left-footed shots.
Next up was Team B against Team C, a game won by Team C but the highlight was Chelsea defender Aina scoring with a powerful shot.
Team A and Team C met in the final practice match.
