Eagles break camp for League games

Nigeria break camp for League games

Posted: 13 January 2011 Time: 9:26 pm

Samson Siasia on Thursday broke his Super Eagles training camp to allow the players join their respective clubs for the weekend league matches. 

The break came after four days of training which was rounded off with a kick about against John Obuh's Flying Eagles in Abuja.   The game ended 2-2 with Ikechukwu Ibenegbu and Moses Ogaga twice giving the senior team the lead, which they surrendered on both occasions.   Siasia has directed all the players to regroup in Abuja on Monday “You should go back to your clubs and help them in the League matches this weekend. But you must be back here by Monday.   "Whoever is not here on Monday should count himself out of the running for a shirt," said Siasia as the players had lunch at their Bolton White Apartments camp before dispersing to different parts of the country.   A total of 27 players featured in the training camp.

Its a good idea but i want to ask a question how many players this clubs sign and how many of are invited from each club the clubs are just risking the life of these players also how can the players meet up any patern that their clubs will use in the match because these players were not in the clubs training days at least 3 or 4 days also we making the other players in the club that were not invited irrelevant please lastly on which acount the players will go go back their clubs

Well its gud to release them for their clubs,if their coaches feel they wont be able to make the team,fine... some coaches find it difficult to play without certain player because they believe in them even when they are sick, fire on guys

Flying Eagles 2 - 2 Super Eagles. This is good for Nigerian football

The flying Eagles where two goals down before equalising.

I think John Obuh and Samson Siasia are the best Coaches We have got so far for organising this friendly match. As they play this friendlies, I am so sure they will take there time in building a strong team after several friendlies. as for this friendly match played, I think the both sides should work on there defence

@Apirapah

I strongly agree with you that Siasia has works to do but mind you that football has nothing to do with age. It means nothing if flying Eagles defeat or draw Super Eagles in a training - friendly, afterall John Obuh can switch some of his good playing boys to the super Eagles while they still play for the flying Eagles.

They are all Nigerians afterall.

good moves,i wish u guys the best....@mansur, i understand the area u are going,but these are all about football,even in england and other europe players move from club camp to national team camp and from national team camp to club camp anytime they are needed that why FA ask all EPL managers to work with Capello,to release player anytime needed,so it doesnt matter,it is an inter state movement.the most important thing is to get them proper arragment for such movement.
like Bigaben said,there are players a coach can not do without(very important to the club),moreover no player will like to loose his position in his club or chance to get shirt in the senior national team,so what they are doing is very important for them but needs proper arrengment,so NFF please take note
up eagles,up naija
forward ever,backward never

@Ugonna,I know they can switch at any time and they all are Nigerians like you said but do you think that Super Eagles squad of U.S 94 would draw a match with flying Eagles of that time? We all should be pointing our fingers where the bullet is coming from,than being judgemental by any comment we make.

i think they could be released as at when due to help their team prosecute the matches since the camping is still within the country but the NFF should be adequately responsible for their smooth transit. God bless Nigeria, God lift u SiaSia

@Apiripah,you must know that this is training match, they have to play soft to avoid injuries beside the two team have important competition coming soon, so it will give every player means to play freely nothing is at stake also, or do you expect SE players to play against the FE like an important match is just a training match, i watch the match SE players show some promising football and the FE also, you can see the way they are free in that match and that is what coach need to find out potential no body was afraid of injuries i guess the two team must have discoursed it, nothing is at stake, you cant come and give injury to this small SE boys and show them class to please who? men we need both team fit.

ONINNA FOR LIVERPOOL

Liverpool are considering a summer swoop for Inter Milan star Victor Obinna, according to reports in Italy.

The Nigerian international is currently on loan at West Ham and has stated he would like to stay at Upton Park, but his head may be turned if there’s the possibility of a move to Anfield.

The 23-year-old has made just eight appearances for Inter Milan since joining them from Chievo, and the San Siro club are reportedly ready to sell for around £8million.

And that has alerted Liverpool’s newly appointed director of football Damien Comolli. Obinna would fit the criteria of the club’s new American owners who are keen to recruit young players who would have a re-sale value.

@apiripah, you should remember that both teams are drawn from the league and even, flying eagles have been training together before this Siasia assembled team. The result is not bad to me. If it was foreign based team, it would have being a different case. Keep going for the best, my man, Sia1

I will advise Siasia never to play with any other Nigerian national teams... not good for morale...breeds needless distractions amd has great potentials for internal struggles. Use any available club side...even in amateur leagues.
