Eagles’ friendly match: Nigerians eager to see Lagerback’s team

Nigerians are eagerly waiting  to see the Lars Lagerback led Super Eagles,  as the team will tonight file out against the Saudi Arabian national squad in its first pre-World Cup warm up match at the Alpen Stadion, Austria. 

The match against Saudi Arabia will for the first time give Nigerians a glimpse of what to expect at the World Cup proper as it would also give the coach a first view of his Europe-based players working together as a team.

On their part, the players who are ready to impress their new coach would do everything possible to make the final squad. “The struggle for shirts is intense and nobody wants to fritter away the opportunity of going to the World Cup,”a camp source told Sports Vanguard, adding, “it has been tough as brothers have been pitched against brothers. But it has been a very fair competition.”

Skipper of the team, Nwankwo Kanu, had promised Nigerians of their total commitment and dedication as they prepare to face the world.

What is your expectation and advice as the Eagles play Saudi Arabia tonight?
