The number of players at the Abuja Camp of the Home-Eagles has increased to 23 following the arrival of Nigeria Premier League top scorer, Gbolahan Salami on Wednesday.
The Warri Wolves striker who arrived in the Abuja camp of the CHAN Eagles on Wednesday was allowed on compassionate grounds to resume late after performing the naming rights for his son. Recall his wife, Lolade put to bed on December 6th.
Salami who is the substantive captain for the Home-Eagles was quick to hit the ground running as after his arrival in the afternoon, he trained Wednesday evening with his teammates at the FIFA Goal Project ground.
Meanwhile, the current camping in Abuja is expected to last for about two weeks before their planned tour of South Africa in January.
Nigeria who won bronze in the last edition in South Africa will be hoping to at least do better in Rwanda where they have been grouped alongside Tunisia, Guinea and Niger Republic.
