Keshi welcomes full house

A full house was what new Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi had on his first day of training with the Super Eagles.

A total of 27 players were present at the session, with the only absentee being Victor Moses, who is no longer expected after speaking with team officials.

Keshi took the team through possession and pressing drills on the artificial turf of the FIFA Goal Project Centre.

Two players, John Mikel Obi and Obinna Nsofor, who are nursing various inhjuries, did not train with the group.

Mikel trained on his own on the natural grass of the National Stadium instead, while Nsofor sat out the session.

The squad will train again at 5pm on Wednesday and depart for Benin on today.
