Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has said his players will not use weather as an excuse not to do well at this year’s AFCON in Côte d’Ivoire.
The Eagles have arrived Côte d’Ivoire ahead of the tournament which will begin on Saturday, 13 January.
They had been on a one week training camp in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
After their arrival in Côte d’Ivoire on Wednesday, the team had a light session to loosen up due to a long flight from Nigeria.
Speaking after the light walkout, Peseiro gave update on the arrival dates for Kelechi Iheanacho and Terem Moffi.
The Portuguese also talked about his expectations for the tournament.
“We cannot give excuse about the weather, we need to put in our focus, adapt well and do our best ahead of the first match which is very important for us,” he said on NFF TV.
