Eagles ready to roll on Korea

The Super Eagles are set for Sunday’s friendly against North Korea in Johannesburg, which is their last work–out against any team before the potentially–explosive Group B opener against Argentina in Ellis Park on June 12.


The team has promptly gone into its training programme following arrival in Durban on Wednesday morning, and will have its last training session on Saturday afternoon before the trip to Johannesburg on Sunday morning.

A deluge of interview requests have come from media houses from across the world but the two–time African champions have not been distracted as they concentrate on their plans for the big day against the South Americans.

Sunday’s match with North Korea, neighbours of Nigeria’s Group B rivals, Korea Republic, will kick off at 4pm South African time (3pm Nigeria time) at the Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa, outside Johannesburg.

After the match, the Nigeria delegation will be hosted to a dinner by the Nigerian High Commissioner to South Africa, General Mohammed Buba Marwa (rtd).
