Ahead of Thursday’s international friendly with the Terenga’s Lions of Senegal, 17 players opened Super Eagles camp in London yesterday.
Team Coordinator, Dayo Enebi, who was part of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) advance party, listed players in camp to include; Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi and his Leicester teammate Ahmed Musa, Carl Ikeme, Ogenyi Onazi and Isaac Success. Also in camp last night are players like, Leon Balogun, William Paul Ekong, Tyrone Ebuehi, John Ogu, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Kenneth Omeruo.
Others include, Abdullahi Shehu, Chidozie Awaziem, Noah Bazee and Moses Simon. Injured Victor Moses was also at the team’s camp yesterday but has been allowed to return to Stamford Bridge to continue his treatment.
NFF’s Director of Communication, Ademola Olajire confirmed to THISDAY last night that the team’s doctors have examined Victor Moses and accepted the report of his club about his injury. “Moses has been allowed to go and continue his treatment at his club,” stressed the NFF spokesman last night.
Moses picked up an injury in the Blues’ 1-0 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup a week ago and was reportedly set to miss up to three weeks of action.
However, he started for Chelsea in their win over Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday, suggesting that he will be just fine to feature for Nigeria in their friendlies against Senegal and Burkina Faso.
Nigeria will face the Teranga Lions and the Burkinabe in upcoming international friendlies, both of which will be staged at the Hive Stadium in London.
The only home-based player invited for the trip to London, Ikechukwu Ezenwa of FC Ifeanyi ubah was issued his British visa yesterday and is expected to join back room staff who are expected to pick their travel papers today for the trip on Wednesday.
