Former Warri Wolves star, Oghenekaro Etebo and 10 other players have arrived at the Super Eagles camp in Abuja ahead of the crucial 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Egypt
The bulk of arrivals at the Bolton White Apartment camp site are the local-based players who ply their trade in the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL.
The full list of players in camp as at the time of filing this report are: Chima Akas, Etim Matthew, Kalu Orji, Ezenwa Ikechukwu, Femi Thomas, Bright Onyedikachi, Chibuzor Okonkwo, Sincere Seth, Emmanuel Daniel, Oghenekaro Etebo and Austin Obaroakpo.
With 11 players already in, only eight players are now expected from the home front as Coach Samson Siasia has already barred the trio of Segun Oduduwa Stanley Dimgba and Usman Mohammed from showing up at the Bolton White Apartments camp of the Super Eagles, after they reported late to the camp of the U-23 team without an earlier permission.
The exclusion of the trio means only 40 players are now in contention for shirts in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations double date against Egypt, with 19 home boys to train for two weeks before the arrival of 21 overseas –based players on the week of the first game in Kaduna.
