The Super Eagles of Nigeria have arrived in Luxembourg ahead of Tuesday’s international friendly against that country’s senior national team.
The delegation left Rouen, where they played Mali on Friday, at noon on Sunday and are now at the Alvisse Parc Hotel, an impressive facility located on Route d’Echternach in Luxembourg City.
There is a great spirit in camp as players and officials look forward to a win against Luxembourg, on the back of the 1-0 defeat of one of Africa’s strongest teams, Mali at the Stade Robert Diochon on Friday.
The team later trained at the Stade Josy Barthel, venue of Tuesday’s clash with the Red Lions.
Friday’s defeat by Nigeria was only the third loss in 11 matches for Mali in the past 14 months, and the Malians have already qualified for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations with two matches to spare.
