By Oviri Kelvin, Sports Editor

The Nigeria senior men’s football team have officially, on Thursday, opened its camp ahead of the international friendly matches with eleven times CONCACAF champions Mexico and 2007 gold medalist in the Pan American Games, Ecuador, in the United States.

Super Eagles head coach and his crew are already with the Nigerian team in the United States to process Mexico this Sunday, May 29, 2022, at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The Nigeria national team whose brilliant start in the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon was marred with an abrupt exit from the continental tourney and a successive exit from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar after its archrival, Ghana, edged them out on goal aggregate, looks to reignite their footballing campaign ahead of the 2023 AFCON in Cote d’Ivoire.

Nigerians are eager to see the fortunes of the team turnaround and surpass the 1994 team under the tutelage of Dutch tactician and most successful Super Eagles head coach, Clemens Westerhof.

Although the Nigerians are sceptical over what Jose Peseiro could achieve with the team, the Portuguese seek to win the fourth AFCON title for the Super Eagles using the friendly matches to put the team in shape ahead of the biennial continental competition.

Eventually, the Super Eagles, already in Dallas including Jose Peseiro, players and backroom staff, start their first training session on Thursday at 6:00 pm (Dallas, Texas time).

Following the Mexico fixture, the Super Eagles will on June 3 tackle Ecuador in Red Bull Arena, New Jersey.
