Nigeria Vs Libya

All the players, who were invited by Rohr for their must-win game against Libya on Saturday, were mandated to arrive camp latest Monday but only four of them could beat the deadline.

According to the team’s official website thenff.com, the delay was caused as result of their imperfect traveling arrangement.

Daniel Akpeyi, Semi Ajayi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and William Troost-Ekong were the only players who arrived camp on Sunday.

However, after the unwanted traveling itches, almost all the 24 invited players are reportedly in camp— as at the time of this report— preparing for the game.

Kelechi Iheanacho, who missed his flight on Sunday, Ola Aina, Alex Iwobi, Simon Moses, John Ogu, Wilfred Ndidi, Henry Onyekuru, Samuel Kalu and Leon Balogun have all linked up with the rest of the team.

Others who are presently in camp include Kenneth Omeruo, Jamilu Collins, Chidozie Awaziem, Ahmed Musa, Oghenekaro Etebo, Francis Uzoho , Ogenyi Onazi and Isaac Success.

Odion Ighalo, who played for Changchun Yatai in the Chinese Super League, is yet to join the team but report emerging via allnigeriasoccer claimed the centre-forward has been in the country since 8pm after a 19-hour journey from the Asian country.

Russian-based left-back Brian Idowu is the only player who is yet to arrive the country. The Lokomotive Moscow defender is expected to hit the team’s camp tomorrow before their first training session.
