Team Captain Chigozie Agbim, who has been in splendid form agreed with coach Amokachi and assured that the players are focused and ready to make Nigerians happy before embarking on qualifiers for African Nations Championship.

"We know that Nigerians are still not too happy with us because we missed the Nations Cup and we have to start getting their support through games like this. All thanks to the NFF for the vision," said Agbim.
During Thursday’s evening training session, Achibong Ukoh, the father of Steven Ukoh, was the guest of the team at the Al Shabab FC training ground and he came away with smiles over his son’s sparkling display in training.

"I’m so excited that he finally decided that he will play for Nigeria and he’s already played a game and I will be here to watch him on Saturday," he said joyously.
He thanked the NFF and the technical crew of the national team for the opportunity given his son to thrive, saying that sooner than later his son will become a permanent feature in the Nigerian set up.
The Eagles will file out later Saturday evening 8:30pm UAE time and 5:30 pm Nigerian time for the international friendly against Yemen at the Sevens Stadium in Dubai, UAE.
