Eguavoen expels Wolves’ goalie from Eagles’ camp

Super Eagles’ head coach, Austin Eguavoen, has turned back Warri Wolves’ goalkeeper, Chigozie Agbim, from being a part of the home-based side currently in camp for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations against Guinea. was informed by the spokesman of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Robinson Okosun, of the development in the Eagles’ camp.
He explained that Agbim was not allowed to stay in camp after he arrived on Tuesday to the team’s camp in Abuja – two days behind schedule.
“Warri Wolves’ goalkeeper, Chigozie Agbim, will play no part in the camping of the home-based players of the Super Eagles because he arrived late. We decided to send him back for that,” he said.
Eguavoen’s assistant, Ben Iroha, also explained the rationale behind Agbim’s expulsion from the camp saying the coaching crew will not condone acts of indiscipline like the Warri Wolves’ goalkeeper exhibited.
“Other players arrived on the day when the camp opened. But we waited for him and didn’t see him until a day or two after the camp was thrown open. That’s not good for a player aspiring to become part of the national team. So we had to send him home.
“The only player that was given time was Ahmed Musa because he was part of the Flying Eagles team that played last weekend against Mauritius and the boy reported to camp when the two days off given him finished,” explained Iroha to
Agbim has since been replaced by his Kaduna United counterpart, Chinedu Agwu, who joined up with the team at the NICON Luxury Hotel camp early this week.
