As much as 11 players have arrived at the Bolton White Apartment Camp site of the Super Eagles to kick start preparations for the crunch double-header against the Pharaohs of Egypt.
The players already in Abuja are: Chibuzor Okonkwo, Sincere Seth, Emmanuel Daniel, Oghenekaro Etebo, Austin Obaroakpo, Chima Akas, Etim Matthew, Kalu Orji, Ezenwa Ikechukwu, Femi Thomas, and Bright Onyedikachi.
With 11 players already in, only eight more players are now expected from the home-front as Coach Samson Siasia has already barred the trio of Segun Oduduwa Stanley Dimgba and Usman Mohammed from showing up at the Bolton White Apartments camp of the Super Eagles, after they reported late to the camp of the U-23 team without an earlier permission.Home stars in camp for Egypt (2):— Nigeria Super Eagles (@NGSuperEagles) March 7, 2016
