Barring any unforeseen status, all invited foreign-based Super Eagles players are expected to trickle into Abuja to join their home-based counterparts who are already preparing ahead of crucial double-header Nations Cup qualifier against Egypt scheduled for next weekend.
No fewer than 20 over sea professionals including Chelsea midfielder Mikel Obi, Watford FC goal poacher, Odion Ighalo, captain Ahmed Musa among others were called to camp by interim coach Samson Siasia who equally disclosed that the full squad will storm Kaduna to plot their winning strategy inside 25, 000-capacity Ahmadu Bello stadium.
At the moment, no injury concerns.
So far, Egyptian coach Hector Cuper has named five Europe-based players to team up with their local lads.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), is considering paying Super Eagles players their bonuses in naira, because of the shortage of US dollars in the country.
Although, top officials of the federation are speaking to the Central Bank about getting the needed foreign exchange at the official rate, they have resorted to asking the players to open naira accounts with local banks as an alternative plan.
An NFF source lamented their inability to get forex at N197, which is the official rate and admitted they were not prepared to buy dollars at the parallel market.
Nigeria and Egypt will play each other in a double header on March 25 in Kaduna and March 29 in Alexandria.
