Super Eagles leave Ismailia for Alexandria
Nigeria’s Super Eagles have left Egypt’s Ismailia for Alexandria in the same country as AFCON 2019 nears.
Coach Gernot Rohr’s team have completed two weeks of fitness training and two friendly games in Ismailia.
The Super Eagles have now left for Alexandria where they will fine-tune final preparations before kicking off the tournament against Burundi on Saturday night. The game is scheduled for 8 pm at the Alexandria Stadium.
After a week of intensive training and hard work ahead of the #TotalAFCON2019, we will be leaving Ismailia this afternoon for Alexandria where we will play all our Group B games.— 🇳🇬 Super Eagles (@NGSuperEagles) June 17, 2019
