Super Eagles vs CAR

Victor Osimhen and Odion Ighalo are yet to arrive in Tangier, Morocco, where the Nigeria national team is camping ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Liberia.

Enyimba goalkeeper, John Noble, has also not arrived too.

Among the 21 players to have touched base are the Leicester City duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, as well as Premier League-based Alex Iwobi, Frank Onyeka, and William Troost-Ekong.

New Watford signing and Nigeria’s most expensive goalkeeper in history Maduka Okoye is also in camp alongside Kaizer Chiefs shot-stopper Daniel Akpeyi.

Also in Morocco are Rangers stars Leon Balogun and Joe Aribo, Cyprus-based Shehu Abdullahi, full-back Zaidu Sanusi, Nantes winger Moses Simon, Leganes centre-back Kenneth Omeruo, Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze, and skipper Ahmed Musa.

Germany-based Kevin Akpoguma and Jamilu Collins, Torino wing-back Ola Aina, CSKA Moscow’s dribbling wizard Chidera Ejuke, Alanyaspor’s Chidozie Awaziem, and Genk goal-king Paul Onuachu are also made their way to camp.

The Super Eagles continue their chase for a Qatar 2022 ticket when they trade tackles with the Lone Stars of Liberia on November 13.

Three days later, the three-time African champions pit their wits against the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
