Eagles test might against Water FC

Even before the foreign based professionals arrive for the cracker against Liberia, it’s looking increasingly dicey whom among the 22 home based players will be dropped from the trip to Calabar, as competition for places is reaching fever pitch.

On Friday morning at the Training Pitch of the Abuja National Stadium, the coaching crew will have a slight idea of the match form of the players when the team takes on Water Football Club in a test game.

That should help the coaches know the worth of each player before the final list of home-based players is drawn.

If the Friday game fails to achieve its aim, the game against FC Abuja on Saturday morning should, as the Abuja side has been riding high in the National League Division 1 and is expected to give the local based stars a run for their money.

The game is billed for the same venue and at the same time, which is 8am local time.

Head coach Stephen Keshi declared in one of the training sessions that if it were possible he would have taken all the players to Calabar, but some must be dropped and only the best will make the cut for the clash against the Lone Star.
