Again, Pinnick Charges Home-Eagles On CHAN 2018

12 January 2018

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubabar has urged the home based Super Eagles to do Nigeria proud in the forthcoming African Nations Championship otherwise known as CHAN starting in Morocco later this week.

The competition will run from January 13 to February 4 2018 in Morocco.

Speaking through his Media aide, Paul Ibe, he declared that the Coach Salisu Yusuf tutored side has enough quality to win the championship and start the year on a winning note for Nigerian Sports.

Team's secretary Dayo Enebi said: "The team will train for few days in Rabat before heading to Tangier on Friday, January 12".

The CHAN Eagles arrived Morocco via Istanbul, Turkey, after they departed Abuja Monday midnight.

"We are going to take each game as it comes; we have had very good preparation so far and the unity in the team is awesome and with that, I am confident of a better outing than the last time in Rwanda".

Nigeria failed to qualify for the final competition of the first two editions of the CHAN, losing to Ghana in 2008 (ahead of Cote d'Ivoire 2009) and beaten on aggregate by Niger Republic in 2010 (ahead of Sudan 2011).

Abdullahi, who helped the Super Eagles qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, was part of the home-based Eagles squad that finished third at the 2014 CHAN in South Africa under the late Stephen Keshi.
