SUPER EAGLES players and officials have played down the incessant flu that has plagued the camp in recent days as they continue their preparations,
With just four days to their opening match at the 2019 African Cup of Nations Group B clash against debutants Burundi reports have been rife that a host of players could be forced to sit out the opening game due to flu
However, the team’s media officer, Toyin Ibitoye who confirmed to AOIFootball.com exclusively about the current situation in camp, stated that the whole situation is being overhyped as the players are well focused on the task ahead.
“Nothing to it. Some players had a common cold, cough and flu…even officials too but it didn’t stop anything as they are sensationalizing, it” Ibitoye stated.
Having failed to qualify for the last two editions, the Super Eagles will be hoping to start on a winning note after being dubbed by bookmakers as favourites to top Group B.
