Super Eagles Hit By Sickness Bug; Hold First Training Session In Alexandria 1700 Hours
Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that manager Gernot Rohr is sweating over the fitness of several key players ahead of the Super Eagles Africa Cup of Nations opener against Burundi on Saturday, June 22.

Nigeria's preparations have suffered a blow with several players, including Ahmed Musa, Abdullahi Shehu, Henry Onyekuru, Leon Balogun and Paul Onuachu, hit by illness, while Oghenekaro Etebo and Chidozie Awaziem are not in tip-top condition having just recovered from the sickness bug that ravaged the squad.

The Super Eagles players and officials arrived in Alexandria on Monday evening after holding a one-week training camp in Ismailia and will be accommodated at the Helnan Palestine Hotel camp throughout the group phase.

The players worked out in the gym on Tuesday morning and will hold their first training session on grass this evening, starting from 1700 hours.

The training session will take place at Arab Academy for Science, Technlogy and Maritime Transport.

Nigeria will face Burundi, Guinea and Madagascar in Group B of the AFCON at the Alexandria Stadium, Alexandria.
