Chelsea star John Mikel Obi and newly acquired Saunders of America striker in the MLS have been businesslike since they joined the Super Eagles camp Tuesday evening.
While Mikel trained with the rest of the squad and expressed readiness to give his all in the game against Harambee Stars of Kenya, Martins started training with the rest of the squad on Wednesday and his impact was immediate, going by his quickness on the ball and general concentration throughout.
“We have decided not to do too much talking but we have the capacity to beat any team in the world and we heard what our opponents have been saying, by Saturday we shall know which is the better side,” Mikel declared on Wednesday.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Super Eagles players and officials also held a special Thanksgiving session at the Transcorp Metropolitan Hotel in the Canaan City.
Supervised by Pastor Divine, the session was specially organised to thank God for the team’s victory at South Africa 2013 and to also pray to God for more victories in the years to come.
All 23 players, officials led by Head Coach Stephen Keshi were at the session that lasted between 10am and 10:30am on Wednesday morning.
