Most Europe-based Super Eagles players including Mikel Obi and Kelechi Iheanacho failed to arrive their camp last night ahead of 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier match against Swaziland on Friday after their initial flights were rescheduled.
Nigerian Pilot Sports gathered that some of the players had preferred to fly Lufthansa airline but it was later postponed for another airline. Mikel’s British Airways flight was due to depart London last night, meaning the earliest possible time he will start training with his national team colleagues is Tuesday evening.
Only Watford striker Odion Ighalo, Goal Keepers Carl Ikeme and Dele Alampasu are lads from Europe who had reported to Eagles’ camp located at Bolton White Apartment in Abuja at press time.
All the local-based players except Enyimba Man, Ezekiel Bassey have reported are in camp.
Last night, Goal keeper trainer, Aloy Agu moved straight to Abuja National stadium with the three goal keepers including Ikechukwu Ezenwa where he spent one hour, 15 minutes drilling them.
Media Officer of the team Toyin Ibitye who spoke to Nigerian Pilot Sports confirmed that full training would resume this evening should a good number of players arrive.
“All is going well. Coach Sunday Oliseh is ready to take charge of training. Hopefully, a good number of players will be in by tomorrow morning (Tuesday morning) and will train later in the evening.”
Returnee Obafemi Martins is expected in camp today after he featured for his club side on Sunday night.
