Ebola: Mikel arrives Eagles’ camp, armed with gloves
Super Eagles midfielder, Mikel Obi, arrived the team training camp in Calabar armed with several hand gloves.
He arrived the Eagles camp as scheduled and told Stephen Keshi he has at least four hand gloves as part of his own personal fight against Ebola, africanFootball.com reports.
“Coach I have up to four hand gloves and if you don’t mind, I can hand one pair to you,” Mikel told Keshi with the rest of the squad reeling with laughter.
Nigeria has recorded five deaths since the Ebola outbreak last month.
However, the spirit in camp is very buoyant with the arrival of the superstars and Keshi said he expects the best from the players against Congo on Saturday.
Meanwhile, 17 players have reported to camp with more players expected before the evening training after only nine players trained in the morning.
Ahmed Musa, Ogenyi Onazi, Efe Ambrose, Kenneth Omeruo, Juwon Oshaniwa, Sone Aluko, and stand-in captain Austin Ejide have all arrived the team camp.
