The Nigerian national team camp was thrown into jubilation following the arrival of the Europe-based trio
There are now 21 players in the Super Eagles camp in Constantine, Algeria, ahead of Nigeria’s international friendly match on September 27.
The number of national team stars rose from 18 to 21 following the arrival of Atalanta winger Ademola Lookman, Hapoel Jerusalem goalkeeper Adeleye Adebayo, and Portugal-based star Godwin Saviour on Tuesday evening.
Adeleye and Saviour arrive with high hopes earning their first Super Eagles camp against Les Fennecs.
It would be recalled Hajduk Split defender Chidozie Awaziem was the first player to arrive at the Eagles camp.
Seventeen other invited stars – including vice-captain William Troost-Ekong, Nottingham Forest’s Taiwo Awoniyi, and Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi – have since joined Awaziem in Constantine.
The Super Eagles stars had their first training session on Tuesday under the watchful guidance of the team’s coaching crew.
Lookman, Adebayo, and Saviour walked in to join their international teammates not long after the training session.
Three players – Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho, Cyprus-based goalie Francis Uzoho, and Lobi Stars’ Ebube Duru – are, however, still being awaited.
Nigeria will trade tackles with Algeria next week, aiming to snap out of a three-game losing run to the Desert Warriors.
