Super Eagles' goalkeeper Austin Ejide announced on Friday afternoon, June 6, that his wife Chito has given birth to a baby girl in Chicago City in the United States.

Super Eagles couch Stephen Okechukwu Keshi promptly named the child 'World Cup baby of Nigeria' as the baby was born almost at Nigeria’s opening World Cup game against Iran on June 16.

The proud father revealed that the girl's name is going to be Chimamanda.

The team workout on Friday evening was tight as usual with Elderson Echejile still absent due to the muscle tear he had in the international friendly against Greece.

Speaking on the scan on Echejile, Keahi said it was not conclusive as he was waiting for a better medical opinion to enable him take a decision. "We don’t have to rush things, we are talking of the World Cup here, not just any other competition so we have to be careful what we say here regarding our top players," he added.
