The arrival of more players at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel camp of the Super Eagles has given coach Samson Siasia an assurance of a full house ahead of Wednesday’s international friendly match against Argentina.
The Nigeria camp was officially opened early today, and the players responded well as they checked into the hotel to beat the deadline set by Siasia.
John Mikel Obi of Chelsea, Israeli-based Vincent Enyeama, Obinna Nsofor and Austin Ejide were the first set of players to hit camp.
The Uche brothers, Ikechukwu and Kalu, Victor Anichebe of Everton, Isaac Promise and his Turkey-based compatriot,
Emmanuel Emenike also arrived the Abuja camp today.
Goalkeeper Dele Aiyenugba and defender Dele Adeleye amongst others joined the squad, that
would play both the friendly against Argentina and the crucial African Cup of Nations qualifier away to Ethiopia next weekend.
Meanwhile, the Argentine team are about now having their first training at the National Stadium between 3.30pm and 5.30pm this evening.
The Eagles will have their first training session at the same venue between 5.30pm and 7.30pm later today.
