The 52-year old has also told that he is impressed with what the players have shown so far in training.

“I think I like what I’m seeing, I hope we just concentrate and continue with the same attitude and atmosphere and pray that everything works well for us in Point Noire,” he told

The 52-year old coach will have a couple more days to train with the team before they travel to Congo, but he added that they do not have enough time to prepare for the game.

“It’s just that we don’t have enough days for training, we just have three days training sessions. Wednesday will be the second day and probably Thursday before we travel,” he added.

They will travel to Congo on Thursday night aboard a chartered flight from Abuja, and will return to Nigeria immediately after the game and prepare for the last group game against South Africa.
