Mikel, others hit camp for Ethiopia

John Mikel Obi is among the Super Eagles players that have arrived Calabar for the Nov. 16 World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia’s Walya Antelopes at the U.J. Esuene Stadium.
Mr Ben Alaiya, the Super Eagles Media Officer, said this Tuesday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Calabar.
According to him, flight hitches have delayed some of the invited players who are already in Nigeria from arriving in the Calabar camp of the Super Eagles.
He, however, said alternative arrangements were being made to enable the players connect flights to Calabar from Lagos and Abuja.
“The players who are already in the camp include Mikel Obi, Bright Dike, John Ogu, and James Okwuosa. All the home-based players are in camp.
“It is a normal process that players would not all arrive the camp at the same time, but arrangements are in place to welcome the super eagles today (Tuesday).
“There is no cause for alarm as all the players will arrive camp for the first training session at 4 p.m today, at the U. J Esuene stadium.
“There is no closing time yet for camping, as some of the player are still being expected for the team to be in full preparation for the match on Saturday,’’ he said.
Alaiya urged soccer fans to support the Super Eagles, adding that by God’s grace the team would get the ticket for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The Super Eagles had defeated the Ethiopians 2-1 in the first leg of the play-offs in Addis Ababa a fortnight ago.(NAN)
