The Super Eagles of Nigeria trained for the second time ahead of their upcoming Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers tie against Seychelles on Saturday, reports.

Coach Gernot Rohr had the full compliment of all of the players with him in camp for the session and it lasted close to two hours with several drills, formation and tactics ahead of the game on Saturday.

Chanchung Yatai of China striker Odion Ighalo proved his present goal scoring run in China is no fluke as he found the back of the net more times than any other forward, who took part in the session.

However, Henry Onyekuru was very lively and his pace and skills proved too much to handle for the defenders he was up against same as Samuel Kalu who looks certain to start on Saturday.

Ogenyi Onazi was full of energy and commitment and judging by how they were lined up, he could possibly start alongside Wilfred Ndidi in the midfield against Seychelles after losing his starting spot during the World Cup in Russia.

As expected Leon Balogun was his cool, calm and assured self during the session, although the coaches are still searching for a perfect pair for the Brighton and Hove Albion defender in the heart of the defence of Nigeria.
