The spirit in the Eagles camp is high as they prepare for their game against the Mediterranean Knights of Libya on Saturday.

The 24 invited players were engaged in a seven-a-side training on Wednesday and they were in fine shape as they showed off some great and wonderful skills.

Earlier today, the team observed their mandatory pre-match conference and some players revealed their readiness for the highly-anticipated clash.

Former Arsenal defender Semi Ajayi, who had his debut against Seychelles last month, admits his readiness to face the North African side at the Godswill Akpabio stadium on Saturday.

Though his chances of featuring for the three-time Champions on Saturday are very slim, the 24-year-old centre-back said he’s ready and willing to give his all for the team if given the chance by Gernot Rohr.

Ajayi further stressed that his teammates are more than ready to take maximum points against Libya after the upcoming double-header affairs.

”We know the importance of these two matches and are determined to do all we can to secure maximum points to give ourselves the best chance of qualification and make our country proud,” he said.

The defender once played for England’s U19 team before he pledged his allegiance to the African side in 2013.

He featured for Manu Garba’s U20 team at the 2013 Toulon Tournament but failed to help the team get progress out of group stage.
