Eyeama Gave Hope During Training
. The Super Eagles Training
at the University of Calabar soccer pitch inside the main campus of the ivory tower is fast turning to a funfair of some sort as fans numbering over five thousand troop in daily to cheer the team at training.
It was initially mild on Monday morning, but by the evening of Monday, it assumed a more exciting dimension, with students and other fans occupying nearly all available spaces within the football complex. It got sweeter on yesterday morning according to team’s media officer, Ben Alaiya.
The fans urged them to go and conquer against Namibia on Sunday, with cheers for every move of the players and officials. Victor Moses, Ahmed Musa and Ikechukwu Uche received applause specially. Skipper of the side, Vincent Enyeama, an Alma Mater of the school, was the fans favourite, as they cheered every save he made. Some of the fans chanted, ‘Enyeama, leave Lille and go to England. Arsenal dey wait for you”. Another roared ‘no let French people kill your talent, Wenger dey wait for you for London.’
