Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi, Paul Onuachu and the duo of Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo arrived at Super Eagles camp alongside eight others to make the numbers available on Monday night 18 ahead of the final two Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers, AllBallerZone can report.
The three-time African Champions face the Squirrels of Benin Republic at the Stade Charles de Gaulle in Porto Novo on Saturday, 27th March before locking horns with the Crocodiles of Lesotho at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Tuesday.
With the refusal of clubs in Europe releasing players for the qualifiers over fears of Covid-19, Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr will be happy that his players are turning up in good numbers as they look to secure qualification for the AFCON.
Aribo and Balogun are champions in Scotland after helping Rangers win the league for the first time in 10years – breaking the dominance of Celtic. Iwobi is in good form for Everton while Onuachu will hope to force his way into the Eagles starting line-up after painting Belgium with goals this season with Genk.
Nigeria are currently top of the Group L log with eight points, one ahead of Benin Republic and five more than third-placed Sierra Leone while Lesotho sit bottom with just two points.
Eagles in camp:
Musa, Troost-Ekong, Aina, Ajayi, Onyekuru, Etebor, Adeleke, Awaziem, Shehu, Iwuala, Noble, Iwobi, Balogun, Aribo, Ebuehi, Maduka, Collins, Onuachu.
