The camp of the Super Eagles of Nigeria fully came to life on Monday following the arrival of more foreign-based players as the team sets to officially hold its first training session today (Tuesday) ahead of their upcoming qualifier against Benin Republic on Saturday, AOIFootball.com reports.
With just 6 players making it to camp on Sunday, Rohr welcomed more players later on Monday with the NPFL trio of John Noble, Anayo Iwuala, and Adeleke Adekunle among those present on Monday.
Leading the arrival of foreign pros on Monday was the UK-based trio of Leon Balogun, Joe Aribo, and Alex Iwobi whilst goalkeeper Maduka Okoye and Germany-based Jamilu Collins also arrived moments after dinner.
Francis Uzoho and Wilfred Ndidi arrived early on Tuesday to join the team while later in the morning, Zaidu Sanusi from FC Porto, Victor Osimhen from Napoli, and Samuel Chukwueze all breezed in to increase the number in camp. Only Kelechi Iheanacho of Leicester City is yet to arrive at the Eagles’ Eko Hotels and Suites camp.
Coach Rohr seems happy with the early turnout of players as they bid to take maximum points against Benin Republic and Lesotho respectively.
