The Super Eagles will be looking to claim a fourth African crown in Ivory Coast next year, and the NFF have already started making plans to ensure the team is taken care of
The Nigeria Football Federation Media Director, Ademola Olajire, has revealed that the Super Eagles will camp in the United Arab Emirates before the start of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in January 2024, Soccernet.ng reports.
The 2023 AFCON is barely six weeks away, and the Super Eagles will be gunning for a fourth African title when they travel to Ivory Coast in January.
Nigeria are one of the favourites to claim the crown because of the quality players at coach Jose Peseiro’s disposal. As usual, the AFCON coincides with the European season, but players would have to leave their clubs at least a week before the competition begins.
Ahead of the competition, the NFF have revealed that Nigeria will be camped in the UAE.
“The Super Eagles camping details are not out yet, but they will camp in the UAE,” the NFF media director told The Guardian.
The Super Eagles are in Group A of the AFCON, alongside Equatorial Guinea, Ivory Coast, and Guinea-Bissau. They kick off their AFCON campaign on the 14th of January against Equatorial Guinea.
