A correspondent for en Garoua reports that the training, which started around 5pm at the Stade Roumdé Adjia training ground, Garoua, was open to the media for 15 minutes to take pictures.

Olympiacos striker Henry Onyekuru scored the Green team’s first goal in six minutes with a delightful shot that put goalkeeper Francis Uzoho to sleep.

The team increased the count through the lanky Sadiq Umar, who showed predatory instinct to finish off Onyekuru’s assist.

Kelechi Nwakali cut down the red-shirted team’s count with a beautiful scream that Maduka Okoye found too hot to handle.

The Super Eagles, who currently top Group D with three points, take on second-placed Sudan (one point) on Saturday at the Stade Roumdé Adjia, Garoua.

The Eagles defeated seven-time champions Egypt 2-1 on Tuesday, while Sudan played a barren draw with Guinea-Bissau.
