World Cup: Keshi Proposes U.S Camp For Eagles



Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi , has proposed a United States training camp for the team ahead of 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The Super Eagles training camp will open on May 25.

Keshi said the Eagles would camp in cities with similar weather condition with Brazil and would pick either Maimi or Houston for the training camp, reports.

“I have proposed that we camp in the United States because by the time we would be opening our camping the U.S would have the same weather as Brazil,” Keshi said.

“There are several U.S cities that would be hot like Brazil and would have the same temperature like Sao Paolo, where we would be based at the World Cup.”The former Mali and Togo boss also revealed that he would like to play friendly matches with countries with similar play style with Nigeria’s world Cup group opponents Argentina, Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Keshi further said Japan is the only country who has shown interest in playing the Eagles, stating that he would also like to play countries like Peru.

“Considering the countries we have in our group, I would love the Eagles to play countries from the region that have the same playing style. But it would also depend on the availability of such countries because some of them may have concluded their friendly arrangement already,” he said.

“But while in Brazil for the draws I was told Japan is interested in playing us, but I would also like to play countries like Peru,” he told
