By; Jacob Onjewu Dickson
Nigeria’s Super Eagles would be making their first attempt at the CHAN trophy which eluded the team two years ago in South Africa as they file out against neighbors, Niger Republic in their first group match at the Stade Regional Nyamirambo, Kigali in the 2016 edition of the tournament being hosted by Rwanda on Monday in a match billed to kick off by 5pm.
The match will be the first test in a tournament for new handler, Sunday Oliseh.
Eagles will go into their second battle against Tunisia on Friday, with more confidence if they succeed in humbling their first opponents. The second outing will be played at the same venue by 2pm.
For their third group match however, the Sunday Oliseh boys will be traveling to Umuganda Stadium, Kisenyi, where they will lock horns with Guinea on January 26 by 3pm.
