The training camp is already intense with the 23 invited players as they all took part in the team’s first training session at the Stephen Keshi Stadium,
The latest arrivals on Tuesday were Paul Onuachu, Leon Balogun, Ahmed Musa, Troost Ekong, Kenneth Omeruo, Abdullahi Shehu, Wilfred Ndidi, Chidozie Awaziem, Moses Simon and Jamilu Collins, the official twitter handle of the Super Eagles confirmed. And others include John Ogu, Etebo Ogenekaro, Victor Osimhen and Henry Onyekuru who arrived later in the day.
It was also reported that Odion Ighalo, Alex Iwobi and Semi Ajayi were among the first arrivals to the Super Eagles camp in Asaba on Monday.
Including Goalkeepers Francis Uzoho, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi, as well as home-based professionals Ikouwem Utin, Ndifreke Effiong and Valentine Ozornwafor, were also present in the camp.
The senior national team technical Adviser Gernor Rohr had called up 23 players for the final AFCON qualifier against Seychelles and the international friendly against the Pharaohs of Egypt, with Utin and Effiong leaping on the list as a result of injuries to Samuel Kalu and Ola Aina.
The training, which commenced for both fans and the media, began at about 4:45 p.m and ended at about 6:30 p.m.
However, the Super Eagles have spoken of the need to end the qualification series on a high note and maintain their reputation while using the game to kick-start preparations for the continental competition.
Nigeria, three-time African champions, have already booked a place in the AFCON holding in Egypt from June 21 to July 19, with the encounter against Seychelles hardly more than an academic exercise.
The Super Eagles will face the Pirates of Seychelles at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, on Friday by 4 p.m and then play an international friendly against the Pharaohs of Egypt on March 26 at the same venue.
