Nigerian players are full of optimism and excitement ahead of their international friendly match with Ukraine Tuesday.
Some of the players, including Samuel Chukwueze, Maduka Okoye, Leon Balogun and Victor Osimhen reacted to their first training session in Dnipro.
After the arrival of Torino’s Ola Aina, West Brom’s Semi Ajayi and Leganes’ Chidozie Awaziem, the Super Eagles camp was boosted to 21 players.
While they await the arrival of returnee striker, Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho, the team had their first training in Dnipro on Sunday.
After the workout session, most of the players were happy to link up with the national team since their third-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, while the newcomers revel in their gathering with Gernot Rohr’s team.

Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is keeping his cards close to his chest on the preferred tactical formation for the game.
But he is expected to continue with the 4-2-3-1 formation that he favoured at the last Afcon in Egypt.
