As is the norm, the twenty-seven players were divided into two groups by manager Augustine Eguavoen -  those that started the last match against Guinea-Bissau and the other group contained the substitutes and players who did not taste action at all.

Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho was present in the training session but was excused from taking part in the activities.

The interesting training game ended 4-3 in favour of the team wearing red, who were four goals up but almost allowed victory to slip away.

Onyekuru continues to impress in training.scoring two goals , Awoniyi made it 3-0 and Zaidu scored the pick of the goals during the training game with a long-range effort.

Ejuke, Olayinka and Simon were the scorers for the team in green.
