There is a consensus here among the coaching crew that the home-based Super Eagles can defeat Rwanda, in their backyard if they continue with the manner of training they have been going through and also have a decent attitude to the games.

Head Coach, Steve Keshi, started the pumping up on Tuesday after the training match against Abuja X1, by again challenging the players to give him reasons not to invite any foreign-based professional.

'Almost all the Rwandan players are home-based and their league is not better than ours, so why can't we do the same here and create a team that other countries will fear'.

Amokachi, spoke in the same vein, ditto for Sylvanus Okpala, whose daily physical drilling of the players has been excellent.

Gentleman, Ike Shorunmu, says with what he's seeing in camp, it's a new dawn for Nigerian football.

The team is expected to start shooting training after their today's (Wednesday) trial game against Ranchers Bees. Keshi says it has become necessary, because of the wastages he has seen of the players in front of goal.
