Officials and players of the national team on New Year eve had a rare time off their tight and Spartan schedule as they were treated to a Cross-Over party by the management of Bolton White Apartment in Abuja, where the team is camped.

All the players and officials led by Stephen Okechukwu Keshi, ate and danced into the New Year with comedians and other invited dancers adding groove to the event. The compere for the show Christian Doherty kept ribs cracking for the entire duration of the night as Eagles goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi prayed the team into the New Year with his prophetic comments and very distinct English accent.

Keshi thanked the management of the hotel for the occasion and told players that training resumes immediately on Thursday morning because of the CHAN task at hand.
