Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi departed for the United States of America on Tuesday to visit his family.

After a meeting with the NFF leadership, it was thought that Keshi be allowed to visit his family and join the team in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates on April 9, on time for the game between Nigeria and Egypt that will be played April 12 at the same venue.

Keshi had dropped his list of players for the encounter with the Technical Committee of the NFF, and the list which was earlier scheduled to be released on Wednesday, will now be pushed out on Friday, while the team resumes camp on Monday, April 2, 2012.

Camp venue remains Bolton White Hotel and Apartments in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

Keshi had already told the NFF leadership that he was delighted with the friendly against the Pharaohs of Egypt, as it would afford him the opportunity of playing his burgeoning home-based side against the Egyptians who have a good pedigree in African football.

In Keshi’s absence, Dan ‘the Bull’ Amokachi, will take charge along side Sylvanus Okpala, Hyndounou Valere and Ike Shorunmi.

Have your say. We'd love to know what you think.
