The Super Eagles camp is officially open ahead of the final two 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers this week and next week
Five players have already landed in Lagos ahead of Nigeria’s Afcon qualifiers against the Benin Republic and Lesotho.
Fulham’s Ola Aina, Watford’s William Troost Ekong and West Brom’s Semi Ajayi are the first set of players to arrive at camp.
Shortly after their arrival, the Turkish contingent, including Henry Onyekuru and Oghenekaro, also hit camp on Sunday night. Onyekuru was initially not in the 24-man squad but was called up to replace the injured Samuel Kalu.
More players are expected to arrive on Monday ahead of the game against Benin on Saturday. The Super Eagles need just a point from their final two qualifiers to seal qualification.
However, the team’s coach, Gernot Rohr, has been forced to make changes to his squad after some clubs refused to release their players due to Covid-19 fears.
The three-time African champions take on the Squirrels on March 27th before hosting the Crocodiles in Lagos three days later.
