Kanu has finally join Eagles

Nigerian legend Nwankwo Kanu, was the
surprise presence at the Super Eagles
closed door training session on Thursday
evening at the UJ Esuene Stadium in
Spotting his trade mark African plaited
hairdo, Kanu was in company of his
younger brother Ogbonna, and took time
off to shake all the players before and after
the training session, with Head Coach,
Stephen Keshi beaming with smiles at the
support he’s getting from the Atlanta ’96
Olympics gold medal hero and two times
African Footballer of The Year.
Kanu said at the session that he was there
to offer his teammates support, as he was
still an active footballer. He admonished the
players to be relaxed but be serious as that
is the only way victory will come easy on
Saturday. “Its like when you want to write
an essay. If you take it too serious when
you get to the examination hall you
become blank, that is why I’m saying they
should just relax their nerves and get the
job done on Saturday, the quality here is
too high for Liberia to survive us”, he said.
During the session proper that lasted for
two hours, John Mikel Obi, who came in on
Wednesday and trained in the evening of
the same day, was again the cynosure of
all eyes as some fear for his fitness, but the
Chelsea of England midfielder came out
smoking during the training. Mention must
also be made of Lazio kid sensation, Ogenyi
Onazi, whose midfield touches were near
excellent, as Coach Keshi gradually zeroes
in on his first eleven for the encounter on
So far, its difficult to pick Keshi’s brains
regarding the starting eleven, but from the
closed session, Nigerians should expect
some surprises when the list of probables
is finally made public by noon on Saturday.
