The Super Eagles of Nigeria are in town.
Nigeria will play against Namibia’s Brave Warriors on next Wednesday in Windhoek in a Group F World Cup qualifier.
Interestingly, Nigeria arrived in Windhoek before the Brave Warriors returned from Malawi ,where they held The Flames to a 0-0 draw on Wednesday.
The Super Eagles flew straight from Nairobi after collecting three valuable points against Kenya, in a game that sent them into the driving seat in group F.  Nigeria are top the group with (8) eight points.
“We had a flight problem. Namibia flew to Blantyre via Ethiopia before connecting to Johannesburg, South Africa and they are still not yet back in town.  We expect them in Windhoek at 19:15 tonight. The Super Eagles arrived at 10:50 in Windhoek from Kenya,” confirmed Namibia Football Association (NFA) spokesperson Dan Kamati.
Nigeria have not brought along many of their well known stars such as Obafemi Martins, Josef Yobo and Peter Odemwingie.
Among the top players brought along by the Super Eagles are Vincent Enyeama, Chelsea’s John Obi Mikel and Sunday Mba.
After the Warriors game, the Super Eagles will fly to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to take part in the Confederations Cup tournament.
