The team embarked on a Christmas holidays on Wednesday and will return on Saturday to continue with the preparations for the upcoming African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Kigali, Rwanda, in January.

Agu said the players are professionals and will not lose focus on the daunting task at hand while with their respective families.

“I want to believe that they players know what is at stake, I equally believe they have Nigerians at heart as well as their expectations at the forthcoming African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rwanda.

“We understand that family is important especially this festive period. That’s why we are allowing them few days to celebrate festivity with their families.

“We agreed on the need to stay focus while the Yuletide holidays last and to come back better players to continue on the programme for CHAN.

“They are core professionals and we do not expect them to abuse the rare privilege,” the goalkeeper trainer said.
