Stand-in captain Ahmed Musa and 21 other players took part in the Super Eagles’ training on Tuesday at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
The three-time African champions are preparing for Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying match against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa at the FNB Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg.
Those at training include goalkeepers Daniel Akpeyi, Theophilus Afelokhai and Ikechukwu Ezenwa, as well as defenders Olaoluwa Aina, Adeleye Aniyikaye, Semi Ajayi, Bryan Idowu, William Ekong, Leon Balogun, Kenneth Omeruo, and Jamilu Collins.
The midfielders are Oghenekaro Etebo, John Ogu, and Mikel Agu, while the forwards are Kelechi Iheanacho, Moses Simon, Victor Osimhen, Henry Onyekuru, Alex Iwobi, Isaac Success, and Samuel Chukwueze.
Eagles handlers say France –based forward Samuel Kalu is expected in camp on Wednesday.
Gernot Rohr’s men need at least a draw from Saturday’s game to qualify for next year’s continental tournament in Cameroon.
The team will depart the country aboard a chartered flight from the Benin City Airport on Thursday evening, and they are expected to have a feel of the FNB Stadium on Friday afternoon – a day before the crucial tie.
