Twenty-one Super Eagles players had their first training session on Tuesday evening ahead of Friday’s clash against the Black Stars of Ghana.
After Victor Osimhen joined the squad on Tuesday evening to swell the number of players in camp to twenty-one, the team had their light session with a corridor passing game.
According to videos made available by NFF TV, the coaches were also available to see the players get on as they watched closely.
Some of the players would need to get back to match fitness as they haven’t tasted much action at their clubs since returning to their base after the African Cup of Nations.

William Troost-Ekong and Ola Aina haven’t seen action at all since returning from a disappointing AFCON outing in January and would need to be fit for the game as they are some of the regulars in the team.
Another player who needs to quickly gain match sharpness is Watford’s Oghenekaro Etebo as he has stayed a very long time on the sidelines and will need game time to get his springs on board again.
