Ahmed Musa Eagles training PIX KABIRU ABUBAKAR

The Super Eagles trained for an hour at the Stade Taïeb Mhiri, where they will take on Libya in an AFCON reverse tie tomorrow night.

The Nigerian delegation landed safely in the Tunisian city of Sfax Monday evening.

The Max Air aircraft that took off from Uyo and had a stop–over in Kano to refuel touched down at the Sfax Airport at 4pm Tunisia time (same as Nigeria) and the players and team officials immediately headed to their Zeitouna Hotel abode for a short rest before the official training session.

The three–time African champions were 4-0 winners of the first encounter in Uyo on Saturday.

A win for Nigeria would take the Super Eagles much closer to a place at the 2019 AFCON finals to be staged in Cameroon.

Leader of delegation and NFF vice-president Seyi Akinwunmi said another win is the target.

“We have come here determined to pick the three points at stake and make the road much smoother for us towards Cameroon 2019. The players did a great job in Uyo on Saturday and all they need is step up a gear here and amass another three points,” he charged the team.

“We have confidence in the players that we have here, as well as the technical crew, and we believe they will do the job.”

Match officials for the encounter in Sfax are already in town for the game starting at 7pm Tunisia time (same time as Nigeria), with Botswanan official Joshua Bondo as the referee.

Nigeria are second in Group E table with six points, a point behind leaders South Africa.
