Names Of 19 Super Eagles Players In Camp For AFCON Qualifiers

A total of 19 Super Eagles players have arrived at camp for the remaining two 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against the Benin Republic and Lesotho.  

According to the team’s media officer, Babafemi Raji, the players were already in camp late Monday night.

The players are camped at the Eko Hotels and Suites and will begin training Tuesday (today) at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, ahead of the build-up to their games billed for Saturday and Tuesday next week.  

The Eagles top Group L with eight points from four games.  

Enyimba goalkeeper John Noble was on the initial 24-man list for both games, but his teammate Anayo Iwuala and Abia Warriors’ centre-back Adekunle Adeleke were handed invitations from the domestic league, following the withdrawals of some Europe-based players from the squad.
