Joel Obi trains alone

Midfielder Joel Obi was allowed to train away from the rest of the group as the Super Eagles prepared for Tuesday's matchup against Ghana.

Obi played 82 minutes in the Italian Super Cup against AC Milan, before heading straight to the airport for a 10-hour flight to London.

The trip left the Inter Milan midfielder knackered and coach Samson Siasia opted to give him time away from training

"He played a difficult game on Saturday, then had a long trip here.

"It’s important for him to take some time off and rest a bit so he can be fresh for the game," Siasia said.

Joel warmed up with the group before going off on his own for a short walk, and then a little messing around with a ball.
