Following the arrival of Maduka Okoye, Ahmed Musa, Oghenekaro Etebo, Kelechi Ihenacho and Paul Onuachu, more players have arrived at the Super Eagles camp ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against the Leone Stars.
Among the new players to joining the players at their base in Benin is Joe Aribo. The former Charlton star, who scored a brace in Rangers win on Sunday, missed Nigeria’s games against Algeria and Tunisia last month due to injury.
Aribo only made his debut for Nigeria last year, but he has gone on to become one of the key players in Gernot Rohr’s squad.
Also in camp is Aribo’s teammate at the Ibrox stadium, Leon Balogun. The 32-year-old featured in the two friendly games last month and will hope to give another decent performance in the doubleheader against Sierra Leone.
New invitee, Sebastian Osigwe, is also in camp after testing negative to the Covid-19, which had initially put his participation in doubt. Kevin Akpoguma, William Troost Ekong, Zaidu Sanusi, Ola Aina and Alex Iwobi are the other players in camp.
Nigeria take on Sierra Leone in back to back matches with the Super Eagles hosting the first leg on Friday before the return leg next Tuesday.
