CHAN Eagles in Tangeir

The home-based Super Eagles were in high spirits for their first training at their CHAN 2018 match base of Tangier Friday night on arrival from Rabat.

Training started at 7pm local time, which is 8pm in Nigeria, and it lasted an hour and a half.

They will also train tonight.

The Eagles are booked into Sol Azur in Tangier along with several other teams.

They will open their CHAN 2018 campaign on Monday night against Rwanda.

Kick-off time at Grande Stade de Tangier is 8.30pm Nigerian time.

Despite a bruising friendly Thursday against Cameroon, which ended in a goalless draw in Rabat, all 23 players were involved in the training and there were no injury concerns, according to team officials.

The players also welcomed the weather in Tangier, saying it is a lot warmer than Rabat, which was 17 degrees centigrade.

CHAN 2018 will kick off tonight at 8.30pm when hosts Morocco take on debutants Mauritania.
