Abuja Selected replace AMAC for Eagles

Super Eagles officials have replaced Abuja Municipal Council with an Abuja Selected X1 for Tuesday tune-up friendly against the Super Eagles, who are currently camped in the Federal capital.

Team Coordinator, Emmanuel Atta said the Abuja Municipal Council (AMAC), which was earlier touted as the national team opponents in the game could not raise a full team, because most of their players have gone on the yuletide break.

The players trained yesterday morning under the watchful eyes of Head Coach Steve Keshi and his assistants. The players were drilled on wing play, fast breaks against the opposition and full concentration during games.

However, Wednesday’s game against Ranchers Bees of Kaduna, is still on the cards, while there are indications that the team will play its first international friendly in mid-January.
