•Eagles to stay at Crowne Plaza Hotel

THE Nigeria Football Federation has given a March 20 deadline to players called up for the international friendly matches against Senegal and Burkina Faso to report to the London camp.

The Nigerian Federation informed the players to make sure they stick to that time because they will start training under the guidance of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr on the same day.

Thus, the Super Eagles are scheduled to have a minimum of three training sessions before stepping out onto the Hive Stadium for their first game of 2017 against Senegal.

Four days later, March 27, they will face Burkina Faso at the same venue in their final warm-up game.

Of the twenty five invited players, seven are based in England, including Arsenal starlet Alex Iwobi and Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses.

Meanwhile, the Super Eagles will stay at a four-star hotel, Crowne Plaza Hotel Ealing, when they arrive in England for their international friendly games with Senegal and Burkina Faso.

The Nigeria Football Federation has informed the twenty five invited players to arrive at Crowne Plaza Hotel Ealing as from 1300 hours (1pm local time) on Monday, March 20.

The hotel, which is located at Western Avenue, Hanger Lane, London, W5 1HG, is 1.98 miles away from the famous Wembley Stadium, where the England national team usually play their matches.

The facilities at the hotel include a gym, fitness center and golf course.
