Injured Enyimba midfielder Kingsley Sokari and Obinna Nwobodo from Enugu Rangers are the only players still being expected at the Flying Eagles training camp in Kaduna.
Sokari who shone for the Peoples’ Elephants in the 2014 Federation Cup and told Completesportsnigeria.com he was looking forward to being part of the team that won the CAF Champions League for the third time has promised to join the team latest this weekend, while Nwobodo is expected later Tuesday.
“Sokari is nursing a hamstring injury, but it is not so major and he has promised to join us latest this weekend. We expect Nwobodo to be in later today,” said team secretary Auwal Aliyu Ibrahim.
“Otherwise, we have a full house and the spirit in camp is very high.”
This will be Sokari’s second invitation to the Flying Eagles.
The attacking midfielder has been capped by Nigeria ‘B’ team and was part of the Super Eagles training camp for the 2015 AFCON qualifiers against Congo and South Africa last month.
