As the Super Eagles Friendly Match against Poland nears, Nigeria’s Radisson Blu Hotel camp in Wroclaw is bubbly as 22 Super Eagles players hit camp for a first training session on Tuesday.
The camp opened on Monday with technical and backroom staff together with 6 players, but the facility exploded into life with the arrival of goalkeeper Francis Uzoho, defenders Kenneth Omeruo, Elderson Echiejile, Stephen Eze, Abdullahi Shehu and Chidozie Awaziem, midfielders Joel Obi, John Ogu, Ogenyi Onazi, Uche Agbo & Wilfred Ndidi, & forwards Ahmed Musa, Moses Simon, Odion Ighalo, Kelechi Iheanacho & Victor Moses on Tuesday.
Goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi will arrive on Wednesday.
Mikel John Obi is not likely to make it to Wroclaw.
“We all had been hoping that the renewal would come in good time for him to fly to Poland. As it is now, it is not likely that he would make the trip,” team Administrator Dayo Enebi Achor told thenff.com.
