The Super Eagles camp in Victoria, Mahé Island in Seychelles came alive on Tuesday afternoon following the arrival of six more players which brought the number of players at the team’s Savoy Hotel Resort and Spa to 18 ahead of Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
12 players ; Henry Onyekuru, Kenneth Omeruo, Francis Uzoho, Semi Ajayi, Samuel Kalu, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Chidozie Awaziem, Kelechi Nwakali, Bryan Idowu, Simeon Nwankwo and Joel Obi arrived camp on Tuesday morning.
In the afternoon, Saudi Arabia -based Ahmed Musa, alongside Turkey –based Ogenyi Onazi, China -based Odion Ighalo, Germany –based Jamilu Collins and the England –based duo of Oghenekaro Etebo and Leon Balogun arrived camp and joined the team for lunch.
Goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa (from Nigeria) and Daniel Akpeyi (from South Africa) were being expected to arrive camp before dinner.
The development means the technical crew can concentrate on the training sessions ahead of Saturday’s game, without any worries over the forced withdrawals, due to injury, of Alex Iwobi, Olaoluwa Aina and William Ekong.
The Super Eagles will look to garner all three points against the Pirates on Saturday after losing their first game 2-0 at home to South Africa in June 2017.
