“All the players are in good condition as I speak with you, some just experience flu and cold, which the team doctors has given them medication and they have started training,” he said.

Pascal also rued the reports of the unknown sickness' while charging the media to always verify their stories before publishing a report that will smear the image of the country.

“When they say unknown sickness they are tarnishing the image of the country, nothing of such happened in the camp, few players were under the weather in their hotel due to the air conditioner.”

“The media should always confirm their stories before publishing it as not to mislead Nigerians and bringing down the team spirit in the camp.”

He further informed that the players and the technical crew are in high spirits ahead of their opening campaign against Burundi on Saturday.
