Nigeria to Camp in USA ahead of 2014 World Cup


 Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has started making plans for the 2014 World Cup. He says he has proposed a training camp in the United States of America. According to him Nigeria will camp in cities with similar weather condition with Brazil.

“I have proposed that we camp in the United States because by the time we would be opening our camping the US would have the same weather as Brazil,” Keshi said.┬á”There are several US cities that would be hot like Brazil and would have the same temperature like Sao Paolo, where we would be based at the World Cup.”

Keshi said Japan have shown interest in playing the Super Eagles insisting that he would love to play teams with similar playing style as those in his group.

“Considering the countries we have in our group, I would love the Eagles to play countries from the region that have the same playing style. But it would also depend on the availability of such countries because some of them may have concluded their friendly arrangement already.

“But while in Brazil for the draws I was told Japan were interested in playing us, but I would also like to play countries like Peru.”

The Super Eagles training camp is expected to open on May 25th ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
